Freedom Red Clover

Freedom Red Clover

Trifolium pratense This 2001 release from the KY Ag Experiment Station comes enthusiastically recommended for hay by Henry Perkins of Bull Ridge Farm in Albion, ME. A top-yielding 24" red hay clover with excellent winter hardiness and persistence. A short-lived perennial, red clover is better-suited than alfalfa to acidic or wet soils. Seed at 10#/acre alone, 5#/acre in mixes, ½#/1000 sq ft.

As perennial hay: Freedom lacks the pubescence (little hairs) found on the stems of most clovers, enabling much faster drying and reducing dustiness in the final product. In field trials, mechanically conditioned Freedom had a drying rate of 22.5% per hour during the first day, compared to 17.7% per hour in the control variety.

Seed coated with Organic Nitro-Coat®, 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.
