Abstract

Wildlife: Woollypod vetch seed is utilized by most seed-eating birds. It is especially attractive to doves, quail and pigeons. The vine-like growth provides excellent nesting cover for many ground-nesting birds. It is especially valuable for pheasant habitat along ditches and fence lines in cropland areas. Covercrop: Woollypod vetch may be used as a substitute for purple vetch in cover crop and green manure seedings. Because it matures relatively early and reseeds well, Woollypod vetch can be used where a perpetuating annual cover is desired. Ethnobotanical Uses: Woollypod vetch, part of the Fabaceae family was used as a dematological and gastrointestinal aid taken for sores and stomach pain respectively
