Clover – Red
Red clover is one of the most popularly used true clovers in the UK. Once established it’s capable of rapid growth and shows reasonably good persistence up to three years. Fixes nitrogen and when grown in forage leys offers a cheap alternative to nitrogen fertiliser. It also provides a very good soil improving break crop in arable rotations, with a particularly strong tap root for improving soil structure.
If sowing as a straight, sow at 15kg/ha. or 6kg/ac. If adding to a mixture, a lower rate may be applicable – please contact us for more information if you are unsure or have any other questions.
