Farm Seed Legumes Clovers New Zealand White Clover

New Zealand White Clover

Cover Crop Seed

Product ID: 979

An improved pasture white clover. Previously sold under the name White Dutch Clover.

Once established, white clover can handle foot and tractor traffic better than other clovers. The fibrous root system typically is in the top 8" of soil, although it does have up to a 40" tap root in the first year which dies each fall, leaving a passage for water to percolate through. More heat tolerant than some of the larger clovers, it is a low-growing (to 12") perennial that can be sown into long-season row crops during the season to provide a "living mulch." Sow after first cultivation at 1/4 lb. per 1,000 sq.ft. (10 lb./acre) and rake or cultivate to cover. Also used for green manure, hay, and pasture. Inoculate with #9511 for best performance. Avg. 664,300 seeds/lb.

White clover is more tolerant of poor soil conditions, minor flooding, and heat than other clovers. It can be mowed and/or grazed short (2-3") and will recover well. Let it grow 6-8" high in the fall to help it overwinter. White clover produces an average of 130 lb of nitrogen per acre, but can produce as much as 200 lb per acre.
