Crimson Clover

Usually planted as a winter annual legume, crimson clover is a good N scavenger and is capable of fixing 30-60 pounds of N. Prefers cool, moist soils and grows rapidly during cool weather. Can regrow after haying or grazing prior to early bud stage, if 4in+ of growth is maintained. Has good shade tolerance and can be seeded into growing corn or soybeans. Normally seeded in mixtures at 2-5 pounds per acre.

Use Exceed for alfalfa/sweet clover/true clover inoculant combination:  Sinorhizobium meliloti and Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar trifolii.
