Iron and Clay Cowpeas

Iron and clay cowpeas are one of the most popular peas for wildlife enthusiasts who are planting warm season plots for deer and other wildlife. They are extremely high yielding in forage mass with high protein levels. They tend to be productive throughout the summer. Cowpeas are generally very tolerant to deer pressure and once established have good re-growth potential. They will also produce seeds in pods in late summer that make excellent quail and turkey food as they dry and shatter.

Iron & Clay Peas Cowpeas are a southern favorite for food plots and are an easily planted crop either in row or by broadcasting. This is an annual legume that provides forage and seeds for deer and game birds alike, and can be planted in early March through September depending upon the climate zone.

Planting Iron & Clay Cowpeas

Plant to the rate of 60 lb. per acre - Broadcast
Rates of 20-30 lbs. / acre can be used on row planting.
OR Plant 3-5 lb. per 1000 sq. ft.

These peas are ideal mixed with other food plot crops and are easy to divide and plant as short strips between other crops.

Great summer-time food plot item - The deer will flock to these peas especially when they are new little tender seedlings just emerging at the 1-2 leaf stage. Cowpeas are a favorite for a good hardy southern area food plot.  - They provide summer grazing up until first frost (Plants are killed by frost / freeze).

The deer primarily graze the leaves especially on younger, more tender peas. Iron and Clay peas are primarily for use in Southern State locations as a summer food plot crop. Note that the plants (seed pod production) growth are highly regulated by sunlight / heat and when planted in more northern states the plants will often NOT produce any seed pods. Excess growth (rank production) found with heavier soils tend to produce more vine growth (and leaves) and less potential to set peas / pods. For the most part the deer do NOT eat the seed pods produced.  They are more attracted to graze on the forage leaves of this southern plant.  Especially attracted to younger plants when the leaves are more tender - Multiple staggered plantings may help to provide more younger plants which are more attractive to the palate of Deer.
