Sow Spring to Fall. Smaller than Mammoth red clover; regrows vigorously after mowing or grazing. Incorporate after the second growth season. Perennial if not plowed under
Medium red clover is a short-lived perennial used to supply nitrogen. Unlike other legumes, it fixes a lot of nitrogen even in high-nitrogen soils.
It has shade tolerance so it can be overseeded into small grains and incorporated in May of the following year. Since red clover seedlings tend to be slow growing,
it benefits from a nurse crop.
It forms tap roots and is useful for remediation of compacted soils. Red clover is also good for weed suppression.
Excellent choice for a forage crop, cover crop and/or wildlife food plot.
