Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover Cover Crop Plant

Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover

Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover is a biennial (2-year) legume that has a deep root system capable of pulling P&K up from the subsoil and redepositing it in the topsoil layer. It is very winter-hardy, drought tolerant, and has an average nitrogen production around 100 lbs. Yellow Blossom Sweet clover will produce the greatest summer biomass of any legume. It needs well-drained soils with a neutral pH for optimum growth, but performance results make Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover an ideal addition to multi-species mixes. It should be noted, however, that Yellow Blossom is a host for soybean cyst nematode.
