  • Ingredients: Clover
  • Use Instructions: Method Seed can be broadcast over a clean prepared seedbed or drilled in with a no-till planter equipped with a small seed hopper. If broadcast on a prepared seedbed, cover the seed with a light disking or press the seed into the soil with a culti-packer or similar roller device. Whether broadcasted or drilled alone or in mixes, seed should be placed at a maximum depth of 1/2 inch. Planting crimson clover seed too deep can result in stand failure. Fertilizer: Soil testing is highly recommended. As a legume, AU Sunrise requires no commercial nitrogen fertilizer. Liming to a pH of 6.0-6.5 and providing adequate levels of potassium and phosphorus are necessary to ensure a productive clover stand. See your local county extension office for soil sampling assistance. Inoculant: AU Sunrise seed come pre-inoculated with selected Rhizobia strains of bacteria for optimal root nodulation and nitrogen fixation. Management: Grazing: Begin grazing when clover growth reaches 6-8 inches in height. For maximum productivity and utilization, use a managed grazing system whereby a 10-20 day rest period is allowed between grazings. Note: Bloat can be a problem for animals on pastures with a large proportion (>35%) of clover. Bloat-preventative supplement materials are recommended. For Conservation Use: When used as a green manure or cover crop for conservation tillage/organic production systems, terminate the crimson clover just prior to seed head development for maximum nitrogen benefit.
