Medium Red Clover
Trifolium pratense Short-lived perennial legume. Up to 24". Red clover for underseeding or grazing. While we highly recommend Freedom Red Clover for hay plantings, this variety-not-stated clover is suitable for pastures, underseeding and cover-cropping. As pasture: The easiest legume to establish in undisturbed grass sod. Vigorous and high-yielding. More drought-tolerant than white clover. Seed with grass early in the season at 8-10#/acre on bare ground, or 10-12#/acre in undisturbed sod. As cover crop: Efficient fixer of nitrogen. Seed early at 15–20#/acre alone, 8–10#/acre mixed with wheat, ½#/1000 sq ft. Suitable for vegetable fields that will be taken out of production for a full season, and a great companion crop for the taller varieties of spring wheat—seed along with the wheat, and leave the clover in place at harvest. In late fall, either mow close to the ground, or chisel plow and seed Tillage Radish. Seed coated with Surestand Hydrogreen, an OMRI-Listed® coating.
