Plant at 1/4″ depth. An ideal soil bed is moist, fertile and firm. A soil test is recommended for proper plant establishment and growth. Organic Plowdown Mix can be planted, broadcast or frost-seeded successfully.
When using Organic Plowdown Mix as a green manure crop, till under when in the flowering stage. Plowdown can fix up to 80-110 lbs N/Acre. Organic Plowdown Mix has Organic Alta-Swede Mammoth Red Clover in this mix, which has a long tap root and can loosen soils and mine phosphorus and other nutrients from deep within soil. Plowdown Mix can be planted in the spring or fall and grow in more acid soil (pH 5.0-6.0) than other clovers if lime is applied at the time of seeding. Red & White Clovers are very easily managed, no fertilizer needs to be applied in most cases and in most cases, when applying nitrogen fertilizer, ic can be detrimental as the fertilizer will stimulate grass weeds to be more competitive. Cutting or grazing clovers will stimulate new growth and nitrogen fixation.
