  • Berseem Clover will produce large amounts of biomass; good weed suppression. 
  • Highly nutritious (18 - 28% protein)
  • Non-Bloating legume.
  • More saline tolerant than alfalfa or red clover (pH 4.8 - 7.8).
  • Tolerates waterlogged soil.

Initial growth is slow, but then grows fast. Expect forage to be ready in about 8 weeks.

This is a summer/winter annual legume known for its ability to tolerate waterlogged soils and soil salinity, while providing higher protein levels than many other legumes. Most berseems winter kill in northern climates (hardy to USDA zone 8 - about 15° - 20° F ), however Frosty Berseem Clover brings improved winter-tolerance.

 

Crimson Clover is a semi-upright winter annual legume that germinates quickly. Crimson tends to remain actively growing in cooler temperatures when warmer season clovers go dormant. Crimson can be successfully established in both fall and spring. To maximize success in late summer plantings, seed at least 6 - 8 weeks before frost. Spring plantings should occur after all danger of frost has passed. 

Strong nitrogen fixing and high biomass potential - N production will be greatest when termination occurs at or after bud stage. 

  • Really good shade tolerance - suitable for interseeding plantings in grass cash crops.
  • Good option for hay or grazing as well as food plots.
  • Increases water-holding ability and flowering stands attract many beneficial insects and pollinators. 
  • Suited for many cropping systems across the country, from potatoes to corn to wheat to cotton. 
  • Hardy to USDA Zine 7 (0 - 5° F).
  • Ideal pH of 5.5 - 7.0

 

Planting Time: March - April or August - September
