Winter legumes is a broad category encompassing clovers, vetches, medics, peas, lupines, and others.
Some species can be grown in blends with other cover crops, contributing to a higher overall protein levels. Others have value as cover crops; scavenging nutrients before they leave the root zone, fixing nitrogen in the soil, and offering habitat for beneficial insects.
Winter legumes have not been tested since 1998. These and all prior winter legumes tests will be made available soon in our archives.
