Mammoth Red CloverOrganic Clover Seed

980G

Product ID: 980G

The best clover for poor soils.

A tall (2-3'), quick-growing clover. Sow in spring, summer or fall, alone or with grain/grass at 1/2 lb./1,000 sq.ft. (15-20 lb./acre). Will grow in more acid soil (pH 5.0-6.0) than other clovers if lime is applied at seeding time. Widely grown biennial used for Nitrogen addition and hay crops. Large plant with big leaves makes it an ideal grazing crop. In addition to its uses for nitrogen fixation and as forage, the flowers of red clover may be used to garnish drinks, salads, soups, and desserts; the flavor is sweet and mild. Red clover may be the best choice for frost seeding; it is extremely cold hardy and does well in most soils and growing conditions. it does, like most clovers, perform poorly in hot weather unless seeded into a crop canopy. Incorporate fully for best results. Mammoth Red clover will fix up to 70-110 lbs. nitrogen per acre. The long tap roots loosen soils and mine phosphorus and other nutrients from deep in the soil. It should be seeded with 1.5-2 bushels/acre of oats to "nurse" the clover. Inoculate with #9511 for best performance. Organically grown. Avg. 238,000 seeds/lb.
