Red Clover

Red Clover is a perennial legume that is widely adapted and establishes quickly, and tolerates wetter soils better than alfalfa. Depending on variety and circumstance, red clover can persist from 1 to 3 years. A good stand of red clover can annually produce 2-3 tons of dry matter/acre and fix nitrogen at 70 - 150 lbs/acre. Medium Red Clover (or double-cut) is a multi-cut clover, which will recover after each cutting; Mammoth Red Clover (single-cut) is later flowering but will not recover after cutting.
