Strawberry Clover Palestine (Trifolium Fragiferum) - Strawberry clover is perennial clover similar to white dutch clover in growth habit and both are grown from bulk clover seeds which we have for sale. Spreads by above ground stolons, similar to strawberries. Strawberry clover is a large-leaved, deep-rooted, perennial clover that demonstrates a prostrate growth habit. It is adapted to a wide range of soil types. Palestine will provide good spring, summer and autumn production but growth during the winter period is low. While Palestine is generally not as productive as other clover species it is one of the best clovers to tolerate waterlogged, saline and alkaline environments, and even areas that flood. Strawberry clover is an excellent alternative crop for these conditions. It is principally a pasture plant that is somewhat drought resistant. Strawberry clover develops a good sod, and is very palatable. Grows 9 - 12 inches tall in USDA zones 3 - 9.
Inoculated Seed - We now offer Strawberry clover seed that has been coated with an inoculant for better establishment. NITRO-COAT® rhizobium strains are specifically chosen for each seed type. A key to any successful establishment and early seed development is moisture. NITRO-COAT® is naturally water absorbent and helps attract soil moisture to the seed, getting your stand established quickly. This coating process which Outsidepride utilizes, assures that only the top-performing and crop-specific rhizobia will be applied to ensure your clovers reach maximum nodulation, stand establishment, and yield potential. The weight of the clover seeds will contain approximately 34% coating material that contains the inoculant and water holding material for better establishment and viability of the seed. There is no difference in the seeding rates between the coated and raw seed due to the increased germination and viability of the bulk clover seeds that are coated and inoculated.
Seeding rate 6 to 8 lbs/acre.
