Ladino Clover Seeds
Ladino Clover (Trifolium Repens Latum) - Ladino clover is a large white perennial clover which makes up about half the total white clover acreage in the U.S. Its high nutritive value and palatability make it a popular choice in pasture mixtures. It is not deep rooted, and will not tolerate much drought. It is two to four times as large as common white clover. Ryegrass and orchardgrass work well with ladino clover in mixtures. Plant these bulk clover seeds with a broadcast spreader.
Inoculated Seed - We now offer ladino clover seed that has been coated with an inoculant for better establishment. NITRO-COATÂ® rhizobium strains are specifically chosen for each seed type. A key to any successful establishment and early seed development is moisture. NITRO-COATÂ® 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 20 to 25 lbs/acre.
