Ladino Clover OG New 2022

Ladino Clover OG New 2022

Trifolium repens Perennial legume. 8-12" tall, among the largest white clovers. This cultivar dates back to at least 1847. Among all white clovers, Ladino is known to fix the most nitrogen per acre and will outperform others on poorly drained soil. Resents shallow soils prone to drought. Frost-seed at 4–5#/acre, or 2–3# when mixed with grasses ¼# /1000 sq ft. ② NEW!
As cover crop: Produces as 
much biomass as any clover species. Seed it on its own, or follow Will 
Bonsall’s lead and sow under corn after hilling in midsummer. Bonsall 
says, “The clover makes a slow start, especially in the shade of the 
corn, and only starts putting on serious growth after the corn comes out
 in September. It makes modest growth up until snowfall, but that is 
greatly enhanced if I let it overwinter and resume growth in early 
spring.” 
As forage/pasture: Excellent
 for pigs because of its unusually low fiber content. High marks for 
protein, digestibility and ease of establishment. Tall enough to be 
harvested for hay, silage, and green chop.
