Clover, Berseem C&I

Berseem clover is a summer or winter annual legume that will winterkill around 20F. As such, it can be a good starter legume as using it minimizes the management in the spring prior to planting. It creates a lot of biomass (6,000-10,000 lbs/A of dry matter), which allows it to aid in weed suppression. It is also a very good nitrogen scavenger, soil builder and erosion fighter.
