Medium Red Clover OG

Trifolium pratense Short-lived perennial legume. Up to 24". Red clover for underseeding or grazing. While we highly recommend Freedom Red Clover for hay plantings, this variety-not-stated clover is suitable for pastures, underseeding and cover-cropping. Certified organic.

As pasture: The easiest legume to establish in undisturbed grass sod. Vigorous and high-yielding. More drought-tolerant than white clover.

As cover crop: Efficient fixer of nitrogen. Suitable for vegetable fields that will be taken out of production for a full season, and a great companion crop for the taller varieties of spring wheat—seed along with the wheat, and leave the clover in place at harvest. In late fall, either mow close to the ground, or chisel plow and seed Tillage Radish.

Seed coated with Surestand Hydrogreen, an OMRI-Listed® coating. Click here for OMRI certificate.

Additional Information

Clover

Clover is versatile, performs well in Maine’s cool humid climate and acidic soils, fixes atmospheric nitrogen, and attracts pollinators—what more could you ask for? The taller red clovers are better hay plants, as they have a more erect habit and greater biomass, and they dry more easily. Clover may be planted from late winter through early fall. Seedlings are slow to establish and will benefit from a nurse crop of oats.
