Medium red clover is a short lived perennial legume that thrives wherever corn grows. Good shade tolerance and cool soil germination capability (41 F) make it an excellent companion to grains. It is an aggressive nitrogen fixer, helps suppress weeds and breaks up heavy compacted soils, and is widely adapted to most soil textures. Great for haying, grazing, plow down or no till wilt down.
