Yellow Sweet Clover OGMelilotus officinalisBiennial legume. Up to 6'. Vigorous clover for cover cropping and bee forage. Thick succulent plants make an excellent green manure. Long thick taproots are very effective at breaking up subsoils and improving soil aeration. They bring up phosphorus and potassium in the process. Bees love sweet clover. Seed at 10–20#/acre, 1#/1000 sq ft. Certified organic.
As cover crop: Plant in spring with a nurse crop of oats for weed suppression. Biennial: most growth will occur the second year. Chop the 6–7' stalks at the end of the second year and turn under.
