    Germination may begin to drop by then, perhaps to 80% or so but otherwise it will keep if kept dry. :)

    So Ive got enough AWP seed for a 1/2acre and a 1/2 plot that was brassicas last year.

    My day time temps are up in the 60s and 70s but nights are still in the mid 30s (last night we had 28)

    When should I plant these. Let the ground get a little warmer or not? I still need to till it yet as well.

    Not that I am aware of but there are herbicides that can be used such as Dual II Magnum pre-emergence or clethodim to kill grasses post emergence...;)

    I found a place that sells 6040 Field peas locally. Is this the same as a 4010 field pea?

    Peas and soybeans sure sound like an interesting combo!! Going to give that a try next spring and still be able to put in a fall plot by broadcasting when the soybeans dry up...if I can get them in in time next year ;)

    Going to use some sunflowers this fall to take the browsing pressure off the pea mixture I will be planted too. For sure will post pics if it helps or not. :drink2:

    Right now should be fine to plant peas and 4010 or 6040 will all work fine. You can add oats for the peas to climb but if you have a foxtail outbreak you may have to kill the oast with clethodim in order to kill the foxtail.

    Cadet is safe on peas too Brian??

    Only thing I can tell you is that it didn't kill my pea's when sprayed on them. ;) But no, they are not labeled.

    As far as the peas go I usually plant them with my rye, clover, oats, radishes.
    I will not be doing them until late August or labor day.

    Should I be planting the peas with something else earlier?

    I think your best off doing it the way you have been Tony but you can plant field peas in early July for the actual pea production. That can work well but like soybeans deer tend to mow them off if not protected so unless you can fence it's easier just to plant them in the fall for forage only...;)

    If you want hard dry peas then plant in early July, if you want green forage then plant with rye in late August...;)
