Legumes in cover crops relationship with peas in the rotation

We want dabble with some cover cropping. We grow Vining peas in our rotation so need 6 or 7 clear years and no other leguminous crop. We did once grow 3 year clover lays and saw no affect. I was going to grow a rye/vetch/linseed mix but not sure about the vetch. May swap it for phacellia. Any sensible opinions or help taken.

Cheers
Will

Is the Kellogg's Origins cover crop guide in the public domain or just for NIAB TAG members? I think there was something in there...
I've just reread it. No mention of this. All legumes in the list come with the warning "consider conflict with other legumes in the rotation."

Innovation and tech in action at Cereals LIVE


There is nothing quite like seeing tech in action to understand how it works and how it can be beneficial on farm, which is why Cereals LIVE will be putting demos right at growers’ fingertips.

From state-of-the-art robotics, to autonomous tractors and electronic weeding, Cereals LIVE will have it all available in video demonstrations in the brand new Innovation and Tech Demo ring, says event director, Alli McEntyre. “It’s a brave new world for farming, with innovation driving sustainability and efficiency. Being able to see the most cutting-edge technology in action will give farmers an insight into where their businesses could be headed very soon.”

So what will growers be...
