Dunn Peas

Dunn Peas are also called “peas” or “field peas”. They are one of the oldest domesticated crops.

Dunn Peas are used as a cool season fodder or green manure crop grown throughout Autumn & Winter.  May also be eaten as a legume.

As a green manure crop, the field pea improves soil quality adding carbon & nitrogen to the soil, protects the soil from erosion, as well as improving friability.  Plants are best dug back into the soil when the leaves are still fresh & green after approx. 6-8 weeks after planting.  Allow the green manure to break down in the soil for up to 4 weeks before planting any vegetables.

Field peas contain high levels of protein as amino acids, lysine & tryptophan & contain approx. 21-25 percent protein. The peas also contain high levels of carbohydrates, are low in fiber and contain 86-87 percent total digestible nutrients, which makes them an excellent livestock feed.

Peas can be feed to sheep, goats, pigeons and ducks as part of your feeding program
