Default Where to buy seed?

Looking to purchase I&C cowpeas and Egyptian wheat to screen my plot for the fall.

Where can I purchase the seed between Allen, TX and Hugo, OK?

Would like to purchase enough for an acre of cowpeas and a little less than half an acre of Egyptian wheat.

Looks like Hancock seed has free shipping and has both in stock. They have 25 pound bag of peas for $45 and a 10 pound bag of EW for $34.

I had purchased seed in the fall from D&L farm in McKinney, but the peas from them are $60 for a 50 pound bag and they can't get EW.

What does everyone recommend?

Thanks!

X3 I have worked with them in the past and many of my clients have bought seed from them over the years and I have yet to hear a complaint.

I bought IC peas from him last year. Special ordered, but only took a week.

If you call him on Monday he can likely have what you need either on that Friday or the following week. Except for jap millet late in the fall, if you go early he will get it for you pretty quick unless his guy he gets it from is out.

MBS Seed
Turner Seed

Go by your local Soil and Water Conservation District, usually in the same office as NRCS. They should be able to order it there and either have it delivered to you or to their office.

There are a few online companies you can order from as well, if you have to go that route might be worth checking into.

I believe el gato is where I read about this site and using its calculator

this is where I go now, in McKinney. I'm shocked that D/L didn't have it, is where I got my plot seed last year.

Pilar - that's good info. I'll have to look at that site more.

I ordered the spring mix and egyptian wheat from Turner seed. Had it within a couple of days. Going to try to go up to my place in a couple weeks and plow, and get ready to plant.
