Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover Seed produces a fast-growing, cold-tolerant, drought-resistant, highly adaptable biennial legume that is known best for its soil-building abilities. Producing 80 to 100 pounds nitrogen per acre and 2000 to 3500 pounds of dry matter per acre when grown to maturity and then plowed under, Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover seed can be grown in wet, poorly drained, alkaline, salty and low-fertility soils. Attracting honey bees and beneficial predatory wasps, Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover also has a very vigorous tap root that easily penetrates hardpan and heavy soils, improving water drainage. Growing well where alfalfa, red clover and ladino clover won’t, Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover hay is preferred over forage by most livestock.
The recommended seeding rate is 10 to 15 pounds per acre on new pasture or 2 to 6 pounds when mixed.
