Mammoth Red Clover OGTrifolium pratense Biennial legume. Up to 36". Vigorous red clover for cover cropping or grazing. Short-lived 24–36" perennial clover best treated as a biennial: mow or graze the first year, and plow down the second year. Seed early at 15–20#/acre alone, 5–10#/acre in mixes, ½# per 1000 sq ft. Certified organic.
As cover crop: A good crop to precede field corn. Deep taproot raises nutrients from the subsoil. Tolerates shade, so a good choice for overseeding into standing crops.
As food crop: Red clover blossoms, fresh or dried, make one of our favorite teas, which is safe for long-term use.
