Breaks down fast into soil, 

building tilth and adding organic matter.

Peas like well drained and fertile loam soils. 

Not for high water table or any substantial flooding. 

Grows on poorer soil than clover but makes less nitrogen. 

Doesn’t compete well with thick winter weed growth--often grown with a grain like oats, wheat, or rye for that reason. 

Winter annual in the south and spring annual in the north for soil improvement and for forage.
