Seeding rates Companion 3-4 lbs./ acre. With other grasses, cereals, other legumes 2-3 lbs. /acre. Sow no deeper than 1/4 inch, either by drilling or broadcasting and harrowing. Roll to ensure seed/soil contact. For fall sowing, September through early November. For spring sowing, March through May. Sowing success will depend on the weather conditions and geographical location. Ideal soil temperatures range from 55 to 70 degrees.
Whites clover performs best when soil pH is over 6.0. A soil test is encouraged. Follow local recommendations for lime and adjust the pH, as well as fertilizer needs. White clover responds well to phosphorus, potash, and boron. Addition of nitrogen will benefit the grasses and weeds, so this is discouraged if a pure clover stand is desired. Make sure to inoculate and seed with the proper strain of Rhizobium. White clover, when properly inoculated with rhizobium sp. bacteria, readily fixes atmospheric nitrogen. Studies have shown that with good conditions(soil, moisture, climate, stand density) there may be as high as 75 lbs. actual n/acre added to the soil from white clover. With the high price of nitrogen, adding clover to your pasture makes economic sense. Pasture will always benefit from the addition of white clover, making them more palatable, with higher forage yields and greater weight gains. A perfect addition for your pastures.
