All information i have gathered says
100 lbs oats per acre
50 lbs peas per acre

This is for single plantings,.. not mixed!! When mixed,.. you cut that ratio down. There's nothing wrong with alittle overseeding ,. but you majorly overseeded. Lots of wasted money ,. and i hope your oats don't smother out the peas before they can get started well.

I'm not slamming you or anything,... but i sure hate for people to waste hard earned money and put that much time into something and it not work out like they planned. Putting down to much seed is as bad as not putting enough down in some situations!!

i agree with the overseeding is as harmful as underseeding
