Certified Organic Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover
Certified Organic Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover is useful for a wide variety of purposes and is one of the most widely used clovers for bees as an attractant and nectar source. Certified Organic Yellow Blossom is also extensively used as a green manure crop for soil building, capable of adding 80-100 units of nitrogen per acre. It improves soil tilth and can be used for hay and pasture; however, it may have more of a bitter taste than other species of clover (sweet clovers have coumarin in their plant tissue which can be bitter). While cattle may graze sweet clover sparingly, they will increase their intake once they get used to the taste. Yellow Blossom should be grazed in the spring and early summer when its palatability is at its highest because later in the season stems may become “woody”.
Organic Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover is pre-inoculated with an OMRI listed inoculation for improved establishment and growth.
Inoculation is recommended when planting legumes.
