This past years drought in Jefferson County completely scorched all of my thriving clover, alfalfa, chicory plots so this year I get to start with a clean slate. These plots are all tucked away in timber so several hours for each plot cleaning out leaves/debris with a leaf blower and push mower with a bagger. I previously had all of my clover in a combination of Imperial Whitetail and Biologic non typical white clover, this year I seeded everything in a combination of Durana and Biologic Non typical clover. There is quite a bit of cow pasture and hay fields on this farm that we overseed with cheap red clover every spring that’s why I only plant white/ladino in my plots. Soil tests in all these plots I pulled in the fall all read a PH between 6.0 and 6.3 so lime was not necessary, all other nutrients were in a fair to good range so I decided to wait till germination to top dress with a 0-20-20 fertilizer for a good boost. I broadcasted a little on the heavy side as always in these woods plots at about 7-8 pounds per acre. Hopefully with lows in the mid twenties to low thirties the next week with a little rain mixed in the seed will get imbedded well. Here are a couple pictures of some of the plots from last spring before the drought. I’m a big fan of the non typical clover even if it is a name brand buck on the bag product, it created the most forage of any clover that I’ve ever planted and the deer loved it. I would however recommend mixing it in with another variety because the leaves on it are so big that I don’t believe the turkeys would prefer it alone. I will try to keep this updated to track the growing progress.
