Partridge Peas Food Plot Seed

Partridge pea is a native, warm-season annual legume with numerous yellow
flowers produced from July to September. Plants average 2 feet tall, but may exceed 4 feet on
better soil. The leaves are pinnately compound and somewhat sensitive to the touch. The black,
shiny, flattened seeds are produced in pods that pop open to scatter the seed when mature.


This seed is a choice food of upland game birds and song birds.

Soil Adaptation:

Grows naturally on practically all soils in Mississippi. It grows best in full sun, but will tolerate light shade.

Seedbed Preparation:

Prepare a clean, firm seedbed.

Planting Time:

March to May 1. Do not plant after May 15 because the seed may not germinate because of heat.

Planting Rate:

Broadcast or shallowly drill 6 lb/acre scarified seed. To ensure nodulation seed should be inoculated with EL (cowpea) before planting. Cultipacking after planting is recommended.

Fertility Requirement:

Partridge peas will grow on poor soils but respond well to fertilizer.
Apply 300 lb/acre of 0-20-20 or similar analysis at planting.

Disking/burning of natural or planted stands of partridge peas usually reseed and do well for one
to three years but will gradually decline without maintenance. Partridge peas respond well to
controlled fire. Areas should be burned in February for best results. Disking will also keep
stands in good condition and is probably a better method in areas where heavy stands of
broomsedge occur. Disking should be done in late February to early March.


Plants can be mowed in the spring before they are tall enough to be cut by the mower.
The plants should not be mowed again until after seed maturates in early to mid-October.

2 of 5 Poor communication March 6, 2020
Reviewer: Steven Crawford from Maurertown, VA United States  
I placed an order on February 28 and received confirmation of the order from seed ranch. On February 29, 2020, I received an email from Sed Ranch notifying me that my order shipped. As of March 6, 2020 according to the fedex tracking info: “Shipping label has been created. The status will be updated when shipment begins to travel.” This is concerning as I have received no other communication on the status of my order. I ordered 185 pounds of seed and spent a premium amount of money for the seeds. I need those seeds and need to know they are en route.
