Woollypod vetch has the potential to grow faster and earlier than hairy vetch. This vetch has been observed to produce more biomass than many other vetches and fixation of N could even start within a week of emergence. When allowed to overwinter, the extra growth aids in smothering out weed competition and protecting the soil. Woollypod vetch excretes root exudates that can reduce the growth of small grasses. Positive yield responses in corn have been documented when planted after Woollypod vetch and there is no known hazards of increasing insect pest issues.
