Clover, Medium Red

Red Clover is a biennial or short-lived perennial that grows as medium or mammoth red clover. Plants have hollow, hairy stems and branches. The taproot is extensively branched, which makes it a great soil builder. Red clover easily establishes, and produces high quality forage, up to 8,000 lb. biomass/A. A great nitrogen producer, it can produce a lot of nitrogen especially when it is allowed to grow to full season and overwintered. In a lot of cases, it is frost seeded in late winter or early spring into small grains such as wheat.
