This page gives instructions on how to buy cowpea seeds from David's Garden Seeds.
Iron and Clay Cowpeas are grown much like soybeans. Frost sensitive, but fast growing to 2 1/2' in warm/hot weather. Sow midspring once soil has warmed. Drill at 25-50 lb./acre or broadcast up to 120 lb./acre, 1/2 to 1" deep. Relatively long taproots help withstand drought. Cowpeas are not tolerant of high weed pressure or wet soils and will perform poorly in these conditions. If planted thickly, they will smother out weeds. Cowpeas can also be used for under-seeding in spring crops and tilled under prior to fall-planted crops. Ready to harvest in 75 days.
