Nutritious and Delicious
Persian clover is known to be highly digestible with excellent forage yield and feed value. Crude protein ranges from 16-28%. Great regrowth makes it an excellent addition to a grass, grain, and multi-species forage blend.
Taproot Soil Builder
In addition to fixing an abundance of nitrogen, Persian clover’s taproot helps build soils.
Wildlife Love It
With high protein levels, ability to regrow when browsed, and abundant flowers, Persian is a great addition to food plots and wildlife habitat.
Persian clovers can cause bloat. It is highly advise to plant with small grains or grasses when used for grazing.
Before You Plant
Persian clover is best grown on alkaline soils, but can tolerate a pH range of 5.0-8.0. It can also tolerate waterlogged soils. For best performance, saline soils should be avoided. Seeding into deep, sandy soils or soils prone to drought is not recommended.
For optimal performance, conduct a soil test and follow the recommended lime and fertilizer recommendations. In established pastures, remove excess forage through grazing or late season haying. This will help ensure successful seedling emergence and establishment. Reduce weed population prior to planting. Be aware of herbicide carryover/residual of chemicals applications prior to planting.
Plant into a prepared/firm seedbed by broadcast or drill. Planting too deep may lead to poor establishment or stand failure. Cultipacking or dragging before and after seeding helps create a firm seedbed.
Persian clover needs to be inoculated with Rhizobium leguminosarum biovar trifolii. This is best achieved with Nitro-Coat®.
Apply lime, potassium and phosphorus per soil test results. No nitrogen is necessary.
