4010 Pea

4010 is a spring forage pea that has been around for many years, and farmers and ranchers have come to know it by name. Out of the varieties we carry here at Pulse USA, it is our earliest maturing forage pea. 4010 is a full leaf type variety, so it puts out a good amount of forage. When paired with forage oats we recommend putting your hay up when the peas are in the flat pod stage, because of it being an earlier maturity, to ensure you get the best quality hay. If you wait past the flat pod stage, you will end up with full pods which may lead to heating and rotting in the bales. In some cases, the oats may not be ready to cut but it must be done any way to avoid the spoiling of your bales. The maturity of these peas, matches up really well with Rockford Oats or Everleaf 114 oats.  4010 forage peas also pair very well with spring forage barley and triticale.

AC® Hazlet Winter Rye

Rye is one of the hardiest forages available. And, it’s one of the fastest growing cereal crops in the spring. If a producer is looking to cut it for hay, he or she will not be disappointed with the tonnage. Rye has a very strong root structure making it an excellent option to help hold your soil structure together over the winter months as well as to prevent soil erosion from the wind. One of the greatest attributes of rye is its characteristic of being naturally allelopathic. This means that the plant itself produces a secretion that inhibits the growth or reproduction of competing plant species. The winter rye offers an excellent winter hardiness, making it a good cover crop option in preparation for soybeans.

AKF Axcel Barley

Unauthorized Propagation Prohibited – PVPA 1994 – U.S. Protected Variety

AKF Axcel Barley is a high quality, two row, awnless, forage barley. It compares very similarly to our previous variety, Stockford, but in many ways out-performs it. Axcel is shorter than Stockford, creating less lodging. In many different geographic trials, Axcel had higher grain yields and greater test weights. Axcel also offers a better feed value and higher protein which makes its forage qualities better than Stockford. Axcel fits well in our cover crop blends. When it’s paired with forage peas, it produces a very high quality and palatable forage for livestock. If saline soils are a problem in your area, it is a great option because it handles the salts better than any other annual grass. 

Everleaf ® Forage Oat (PVP)

Unauthorized Propagation Prohibited – PVPA 1994 – U.S. Protected Variety

Everleaf® Oat is a true spring forage oat that has huge yield potential, whether it be Everleaf® 114 or Everleaf 126. They both have dark green foliage and excellent standability. Everleaf® oats are a delayed heading oat, so much of their forage mass and quality come from its extended maturity. The Everleaf® 126 is slightly later maturing than the 114, by about seven to ten days. Since these varieties are naturally vegetative for a longer period; biomass accumulation can be extraordinary, assuming adequate moisture and fertility. Everleaf® has excellent resistance to rust and most other leaf and stem diseases. These varieties are an extremely high yielding and high quality oat, which boasts high tonnage when it’s cut for hay. The maturity of Everleaf® pairs perfectly with Flex forage peas in a mixture.

Advantages
High yielding and high quality.
Adapted Area
Adequate rainfall and fertility required.

Fergie Forage Peas

Unauthorized Propagation Prohibited – PVPA 1994 – U.S. Protected Variety

Fergie is our newest forage pea. It has an incredibly unique seed which sets it apart from any other forage pea. It has an extremely small yellow seed with a black helium. The small seed size makes this ideal for cover crop mixes, because it can blend easily and keeps seed cost per acre low. Fergie produces high tonnage and is an excellent forage for all livestock. The improved stem strength makes it less prone to lodging, and offers good standability.

Flex Forage Pea

Unauthorized Propagation Prohibited – PVPA 1994 – U.S. Protected Variety

There is an exciting new forage pea in the Pulse USA lineup. Flex is a white-flowered, green cotyledon, leaf type – long-vined plant that is less hard-seeded than purple-flowered forage varieties. Flex is substantially later than our current forage pea options and Flex will match up perfectly with the maturity of EverLeaf 126 forage oat. The combination of Flex pea and EverLeaf 126 oat in a custom blend will allow forage yields to reach elevated production levels unseen before.

Advantages
Exceptional forage growth, superior frost tolerance, small seeded - white flowered (less hard seed issues than purple flowered types), very palatable and highly digestive, excellent seedling vigor, stooling capabilities, late maturing leaf type plant.
Adapted Area
Very versatile pea; should move anywhere and perform well.

German Millet

German Millet is a warm season annual. This variety is considered an “in and out” hay crop because of the later maturity with a fast growth habit. German Millet has excellent tonnage which can be baled, grazed or chopped. It is high in protein and a great feed source for all livestock. German Millet works great in various cover crop blends because of the different uses it contains. It helps build organic matter, improve soil health, and wildlife also love it. It is a low water user which makes it work so well in drier environments, including drought situations. 

GW-1160, Grain Sorghum

GW 1160 Grain Sorghum is the earliest maturity variety of sorghum offered. It does well on all soil types and many different conditions including drought. This variety offers outstanding yield. GW 1160 Grain Sorghum has a good disease resistance package, including Downy Mildew and Fusarium. The dryland agronomic package that this variety offers will be sure to please you.

GW-400 BMR, Forage Sorghum

GW-400 BMR is a forage sorghum that also carries the BMR 6 gene, and it is sure to produce a very high quality forage. 400 BMR requires very little water, which makes it a good alternative to corn, but with lower inputs. It matures at about 80-85 days, and it should be harvested at the early heading stage. Because of its maturity length, producers will have the ability to double crop. If you plant a winter forage such as: rye, triticale, or willow creek winter wheat – and you get that off your field in time, you will be able to go back in and get this warm season grass planted right on time. This variety is best when it is used for silage, but it can also produce a good hay crop. 400 BMR also has a reduction in lignin to help improve digestibility.

Hybrid Pearl Millet

Pearl millet is a hybrid millet that works well for rotational grazing or multiple hay cuttings. It does well in drought situations, but it produces the best tonnage when adequate moisture is available. In order to get your best regrowth for a second cutting, it should be first hayed right above the 2nd node. Not only is it excellent for haying, it is a good erosion management tool and a great soil builder. 

Icicle Forage Pea

Unauthorized Propagation Prohibited- PVPA 1994 -U.S. Protected Variety                                                                            To be sold by variety name only as a class of certified seed.

Icicle is one of our newest forage peas. Icicle has a very small seed size (approximately 4,000 sees/lb) which provides growers with more seeds per pound and a lower seed cost per acre. Though this forage pea may be small it has the best winter hardiness of any other winter pea on the market today. Planting winter peas in the Fall is suited best for the southern most states. Unlike many alternative forage peas, Icicle possesses a white flower which means the foliage is free of Anthocyanins. This makes the biomass of this variety considerably sweeter resulting in better palatability and digestibility for your livestock. 

Seed Size: Extra Small
Physiological Maturity:
Late
Standability:
Fair to Good

Kona Oat

Unauthorized Propagation Prohibited – PVPA 1994 – U.S. Protected Variety

Kona is a traditional type oat (white seeded) that can be expected to out-produce other traditional types commonly used for forage (e.g. Morton). Kona produces dense foliage with a striking dark green color. Compared to EverLeaf 126, Kona offers these advantages: 1) Kona has demonstrated Barley Yellow Dwarf (Red Leaf) virus resistance in addition to tolerance to crown rust; 2) Kona is earlier maturing (comparable to Morton); 3) Kona has proven itself to be more durable and productive under stressful conditions, yet remains competitive in higher yield environments.

Advantages
High yielding and high quality, stress tolerant, Barley Yellow Dwarf resistant.
Adapted Area
Broadly adapted with no notable restrictions.

MasterGraze Corn

MasterGraze Corn is a top-quality forage corn that is an excellent choice for haylage, balage, silage or grazing. This variety produces a very high tonnage in a short amount of time. It also offers a chance at double chopping if planted early enough. MasterGraze corn has a high sugar content which makes it very palatable to livestock. It is also easily digested. MasterGraze is high in protein and is an excellent feed source. 

Nutra-King BMR 6, Sorghum x Sudangrass

In years past, we have carried 300 BMR sorghum/sudangrass, but in 2016 Nutra-King replaced that variety – and we’re very excited about it! It has the brown midrib trait, requires low water, grows quickly, and has high yield potential. Nutra-King is an all-around category winner for haying, grazing, and silage with extremely high palatability and digestibility. Energy will increase on this variety in the early boot stage as sugar forms in the stalks and leaves. In order to maximize your forage quality, this variety should be taken at around 40-55 days. You will want to make sure you have about one pound of nitrogen available per growing day. This rule of thumb actually applies for all varieties of sorghum, sudangrass, and sorghum/sudangrass crosses.

Piper Sudangrass

Piper Sudangrass is a warm season grass with good drought tolerance and a low water usage. This variety works great in saline soils and is a component of our “Salt Tolerant” cover crop mixture. It builds the soil up and also works as an erosion management tool. Piper Sudangrass is a great feed supplement. It is a great source for forage and grazing, as well as, green chopping and in cover crop mixes. If allowed to hit maturity, it is very attractive to wildlife.

Super Sugar Sorghum x Sudangrass

Super Sugar got its name for a reason - this variety of sorghum-sudan stays sweet longer, making it much more palatable for your livestock. This hybrid can be harvested in about 40-55 days; depending on the height & number of cuttings you desire. It’s an excellent variety for rotational grazing; with protein levels that can reach upwards of 18% and a TDN value that can hit 62%. With this hybrid being a low water user and displaying a good disease package; it’s a warm season forage that producers come back to every year. 

Wheatly Spring Triticale

Triticale is a cross between rye and wheat, boasting the best of both worlds. The winter hardiness it receives from the rye genetics, and the protein potential it gets from the wheat, make it an excellent forage crop. It produces wide leaves, has excellent forage and grazing qualities, and produces high tonnage. Spring Triticale offers an excellent cold tolerance and excellent drought tolerance. It is resistant to stem and leaf rust in the Upper Midwest. Triticale is broadly adapted across growing environments, with no notable restrictions. Depending on your planting intentions, we can supply triticale in both spring and winter varieties.

Willow Creek Winter Wheat

Willow Creek forage winter wheat was released by the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station in 2005. Willow Creek is a tall, late-maturing, fine-stemmed winter wheat with great forage characteristics. Producers are pleased with it because it’s beardless, highly palatable, and has good winter hardiness. Willow Creek can be used as a nutritious pasture source to delay turnout on native or seeded pastures. The best time to harvest Willow Creek is right after it has headed. At that stage the protein is usually in the 12 to 13 percent protein range.

Advantages
Beardless, Highly palatable, good winter hardiness.
Adapted Area
Very versatile winter wheat, with no notable restrictions.

Forage Barley and Pea Blend

If oats isn’t a favorite, barley can be substituted. Our hooded (awnless) barley varieties will tiller much heavier than traditional barley varieties, which offers a much higher quality forage value, especially when paired with forage peas. A forage barley and forage pea blend will not produce as much tonnage as a forage oat and forage pea blend, but the barley will maintain its forage quality longer than oats will. If nitrates are a problem in your soil, barley will perform better than oats. 

Forage Oat and Pea Blend

When choosing a blend for forage, the combination of wide leaved forage oats and long vined forage peas offers extremely high quality hay for producers. The addition of peas in the blend increases the protein content of the feed. These blends are highly palatable to livestock. When customizing these blends, it is important to match the right varieties with one another due to varying crop maturities. These blends are adapted to all production areas, when the correct varieties are utilized. This blend offers a very high yield and good standability. It also fits the hay market well. 

Forage Triticale and Pea Blend

A forage triticale and forage pea blend is a great option for a producer that wants a fast growing hay crop, or to green chop. The best timing to cut this blend is when the triticale reaches the boot stage. At this stage you will receive the highest quality on your forage. If you plan to green chop this mix, you will surely get the most tons per acre. With triticale being a cross between rye and wheat, you get the best of both worlds.
