Reduce your nitrogen fertilizer bill by adding clovers. Timing of planting is critical as clovers need ample time to germinate and establish a root system in the fall before severe frosts hit. Crimson clover matures earlier than other legumes, so it has the highest nitrogen potential for early terminated cover crops.
- Creates nitrogen to be put back into the soil for the next crop (estimated between 75-100 lbs/A)
- Plant 4-6 weeks before the first hard frost
