Growth Results

This was an experimental kill plot to see if we could establish peas without a fence on small acreage in the fall. We had low expectations for growth. Emergence was sparse and then it stunted. The deer found it and wiped it out.

Activity Results

We had deer activity in this plot but only because it was on an active deer trail. Feeding activity here was basically non-existent.


In fairness to this blend, we were simply testing to see if peas would establish on a small plot without a fence. They did not. We would try this blend again but it would have to be fenced and likely spring-planted.
