Red Clover Cover Crop Plant

Red Clover is a short-lived biennial clover that is very winter hardy and will work well interseeded into wheat or other cereals in the spring, a few months before harvest. Part of the Red Clover protein is a bypass protein allowing it to make an excellent livestock feed. While being both heat and shade tolerant, Red Clover can fix nitrogen and can produce upwards of 100 lbs/ac of nitrogen under optimal conditions.
