We've most often done oats when spring seeding alfalfa. We don't usually put a nurse crop with our fall seeded alfalfa.

I just heard about using peas this year and I like the idea.

We have had the best stand planting into fall triticale stubble. This also makes a great triticale/alfalfa mixed crop that the beef guys love, especially for calves.
