Subterranean Clover Seeds
Subterranean Clover (Trifolium Subterraneum) - Subterranean clover is an annual clover well adapted to warm moist winter and dry summers. Flourishes in Australia when grown from bulk clover seeds, used as a rangeland legume in Western Oregon and California. Suitable for foothills and non-irrigated pastures. A portion of the seed head buries in the soil giving this clover its name and causes a difficult seed harvest. This clover is considered a reseeding winter annual plant. Needs 15 inches of rainfall, grows to 3000 feet elevation. Tolerant to acidic soils, requires well-drained soil. Used for permanent pastures.
Inoculated Seed - We now offer Subterranean 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 20 to 25 lbs/acre.
