Our Plowdown Mix is a great soil builder and Nitrogen provider!
Plowdown mix consists of: 24% Alta Swede Mammoth Red Clover, 24% Alsike Clover, 24% Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover and 4% Ladino Clover.
Plowdown Mix can fix up to 80-110 lbs N/Acre.
Plowdown Mix contains a premix of clovers which are pre-inoculated with an OMRI Listed alfalfa/clover combination inoculant for improved establishment and growth.
Inoculation is recommended when planting legumes.
*See details on Seed Coatings and Inoculations and the OMRI downloadable certificates on our Reference Page.
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.
When using Plowdown Mix as a green manure crop, till under when in the flowering stage. Plowdown Mix has 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.
Cutting or grazing clovers will stimulate new growth and nitrogen fixation.
