Crimson Clover (w/Nitro Coat® Organic)
Crimson Clover (w/Nitro Coat® Organic) is a high producing annual clover known for its excellent nitrogen value (produces up to 140 units of N/Acre when planted in the spring) and its fast growth habit, making it an excellent cover crop or fall/winter forage. Crimson is high in protein, easy to establish and shows better growth in lower temperatures than other annual clovers. Crimson can be utilized in pastures, hay, pollinator enhancements, silage mixes, or used as a winter cover for soil protection or green manure crop for soil improvement.
As a summer annual, plant when chance of frost has passed. When planted in late spring, Crimson grows rapidly and is an excellent weed suppressor. Crimson is shade tolerant and is very effective as a living cover in orchards. Crimson also makes an excellent deer attractant and food source when planted in the fall with brassicas and a great bee attractant.
Crimson Clover is coated and pre-inoculated with an OMRI listed coating and inoculation for improved establishment and growth.
Coatings are beneficial for better seed coat protection and are easier to plant.
