Lynx Winter Pea is an exciting new multipurpose winter field pea with better cold tolerance, excellent palatability and improved disease resistance. Lynx Winter Pea is a clear-coated, smooth green pea that produces white flowers. These characteristics are particularly significant for attracting wildlife. Clear-coated, white-flower pea plants have been shown to be more palatable than purple-flowering pea plants because they are tannin-free, making the plants sugar-sweet, not bitter. Lynx Winter Pea is a semi-leafless variety with short internodes. For the cover-crop market, it offers improved winter hardiness, meaning longer production of roots, nodulation and high nitrogen.

Here at Kauffman Seeds, we strive to focus on the individual customer’s needs. We tailor mixes to meet their goals, as well as strive to maintain flexibility for their production system. Throughout the last few dry years, it has been very apparent that blends, even just for forage production goals, have been a very good investment. Many times, we have observed fields of monocultures stressing when fields of mixed species have handled the stress well. The soil-health attributes of planting multispecies mixes are also another key benefit. Benefits of mixes have been observed with four or more species.
