An excellent seed for deer food plots or food plot mixes. Crimson Clover is a winter annual legume with long and brilliant red flowers maturing from bottom to top. Crimson Clover can grow up to 18 inches tall.
Seeding Instructions- If planted alone in a deer food plot, broadcast at 20-30 lbs/acre into a well prepared soil from August to October. Lightly disk or drag to a depth of 1/4 inch.
Fertility- Crimson Clover will grow on poorer soils than most others clovers. It grows best on well drained Sandy and Clay soils and when proper amounts of phosphorus and potassium are applied. Crimson Clover is moderately tolerant of soil acidity but does best between pH 5.8-6.5, so a soil test is always recommended. After it is established, Crimson Clover grows at lower temperatures and is superior to other clovers.
Forage Quality- Protein content ranges from 14-20% depending on maturity. Forage yields range from 2-3.5 tons/acre/year.
Wildlife Food Plot Advantages- Least expensive, most adaptable annual clover, especially for the South. Great seeds in deer food plots or in a food plot mix.
