SiloBuster Plus Pea & Barley Mix

LC 6040 Pea Features:

  • Seed Quality: LC 6040 peas have a tougher seed coat
  • Dry Matter Yield: LC 6040 peas have longer vines, larger leaf surface, giving higher yield, more milk
  • 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.

Alone (lbs./acre): 100-150
As Nurse Crop (lbs./acre): 100-120

Planting Time: Best in early spring or fall when weather is cooler and moisture is reliable.
