What you will learn: Large flower partridge pea - Chamaecrista fasciculata aka Cassia fasciculata, is a native, annual legume occurring across the native range of longleaf pine. It has been utilized widely in food plots for quail, and cultivars have been included in many native herbaceous seed mixes that have been broadcast or drilled into young longleaf pine plantations across the southeast. Because partridge pea is highly competitive in these young stands, many longleaf pine plantings have failed. In this webinar, we will examine how partridge pea grows, reproduces, and spreads. We will also examine potential means of controlling partridge pea with both mechanical and herbicide treatments. We will look into how: partridge pea kills young longleaf seedlings, which cultivars are most risky to utilize, and we will present several alternative species that should be considered as logical and desirable native legumes that could be substituted in native seed mixes to replace large flower partridge pea.
