Farm Seed Legumes Clovers

Crimson Clover

Cover Crop Seed

Product ID: 982

An upright winter annual legume.

Grows to 1-3' and sports striking crimson blossoms in quantity. Where winter is above -10°F (-23.3°C), it is sown in late summer, is dormant in winter, resumes growth in spring, and flowers in May. Crimson clover fixes up to 200 pounds of nitrogen per acre, and prefers well-drained, loam soils with good organic matter content for best results. It is an excellent choice for underseeding as it grows well in the shade of other crops. Easier to incorporate in the spring than Hairy Vetch. Do not use for frost seeding as it won't handle the cold nearly as well as red clover. Crimson clover will not re-grow after close grazing or mowing once flowering has begun. Crimson clover does best in cool, humid weather and will perform poorly in the heat of summer. Sow 20-25 lb./acre alone or with grain/grass. Inoculate with #9511 for best performance. Avg. 84,300 seeds/lb.
