Cowpeas For Cover Crop

I planted cowpeas between peach trees which I have kept irrigated; when

should they be plowed under?

Cowpeas will be killed by frost in most places and should, therefore, be

plowed in this fall whenever you have a large growth of green stuff and

the ground gets moist enough so that the trees will not be endangered by

drying out of the soil, which is likely to occur after plowing in coarse

material, unless the soil is kept moist by rain or otherwise.
