Winter Forage Peas are highly favored by whitetail deer and will make a great food plot or addition to a plot seed mixture planted in the fall to attract deer and wildlife. These fast growing peas will attract deer to a plot soon after germination making them a favorite for bow hunting.

High cold tolerance, may not tolerate extreme temperature fluctuations or severe winters when the small pea plants are exposed to long periods of sub-zero weather.

After using local mix's and other brands with some success we tried merit seed and were amazed at how well it preformed looks like 100% growth rate. less seed more growth means less cost per acer. Austrian Winter Peas,Winter Grain Rye,and clovers all have done very well!
