VARIETY NOT STATED COATED ALSIKE CLOVER SEED 50 LB

CLY2009
  • Details

Alsike clover is an introduced, short-lived, non-creeping perennial with a growth habit similar to red clover. It can be distinguished from red clover by the absence of crescent-shaped marks on each leaflet and more conspicuously toothed leaves. Alsike clover is used for hay, pasture, and soil improvement, and is preferred where very wet or acid soils are encountered. It is seldom grown by itself as it grows well in mixtures with grasses. Grass/alsike clover mixtures are easier to harvest for hay because the grass holds the clover more upright. Usually produces only one hay crop a year.
