Silobuster (Pea/Oat)

LC 6040 Forage peas were tested for forage yield and quality in a comparison test with Trapper Peas.

Features are:

  • Seed Quality **LC 6040 peas have a tougher seed coat than Trapper peas.
  • Dry Matter Yield **LC 6040 peas have longer vines, larger leaf surface, giving higher yield, more milk.
  • Stand Establishment **LC 6040 peas emerge faster, especially in cooler soils. The LC 6040 seed coat contains a more effective metabolic system that imparts the ability to germinate and emerge more rapidly, when soils are wet or cool.

Combine LC 6040 features with a superior brand of Caliber OATS, and the results will satisfy any discriminating dairy or beef producer. In some comparison tests the following observations were made:

Seeding Rate:

120 lbs. / Acre overseeded with Alfalfa
150 lbs. / Acre alone
