According to the Southern Field & Farm Planting Guide, its 60 llbs per acre.

The wildlife seeds website agrees.
http://www.wildlifeseeds.com/info/springplanting.html

The Hunters Edge says 50 llbs.

So... I'd say 55-60 llbs per acre should cover it ! 8)

Hey James,on 5 acres it will only take the deer a couple days to wipe the entire crop out.In my opinion peas are a deer's favorite summer crop.You will be amazed in how fast they will gobble them up.It usually takes around 4 to 5 weeks for them to mature.
You will find me 25 feet up in a tree.

You need to plant atleast 2 acre food plots or you will be waisting your time.I have never seen anything like it.Peas dont grow back so once the deer snip the tops the crop is gone.They provide alot of protein so they really are beneficial to the herd.

i tried planting a small plot of soybeans once on about 3/4 acre once... The deer wiped them out as soon as the plant broke out of the ground !

nobucks, Just before they bloom the deer will bring their mowers in and munch until the tops are gone. If I were you, I would set a trailcam on the plot and maybe u can see what u will be up against this year :shock:
I planted peas 4 times last year in the same spot. they would watch and wait, and then mow'em down.
