Doing the same thing this afternoon.
One thing about it, all of our rye and turnip plots were bare dirt due to the drought and browsing pressure from the deer. This years frost seeded clover should definitely have good seed to soil contact.
For an initial seeding, I intentionally go a bit heavy so if there's a little overlap that's fine with me. The seed is cheap enough.
Did mine last Saturday. Red clover, it's all the mfa had on hand and the timing was right for me.
I used a Spreader on the back of the ATV.. used either Pel-lime or 6-24-24 as a spreading medium..worked well last year so I did it again this year on the new plots
We got a buggy from MFA with pellet lime and fertilizer, then a seeder on the back of a four wheeler. Sowed some red, some Durana an aggressive ladino and then sowed a new one to me but was said to be like Durana I think it was kew kew.
Did a bunch yesterday in the ice. Could see my tracks from the utv very easy to know where I had been.
Was it Kopu II? I have heard of that one, but never planted any.
Kew Kew is Amrish for Kopu II.
As with all things, the more prep work you do, the better your results. Reitz has a great chance of success with his situation. Sowing into established fescue, much less IMO. There are 1001 ways to do things, though. Just don't be surprised if the easiest route ends up taking more work and chemicals in the long run to fix the problems that were ignored initially...
We have raised some great stands of red clover by having the seed mixed with N fertilizer and put on when we top dressed wheat. There is a pretty wide margin a guy can sow clover with good results.
Red Clover stands only last 2-3 years, true?
True. We have overseeded some to keep them going an extra year or two. I prefer to rotate them though.
I've been using Kopu II for several years now . Works with other mixes and rotational grazing for cattle. Establishes well in food plots and fairly drought resistant . It's not cheep but highly recommended.
Another important factor that is often over looked is making sure you inoculate your seed. Also make sure that you have the proper type of inoculate for specific seed type .
Kopu II is only $4.75 a pound at Welters, best price I've found it for.
Is this seed coated ? Good price either way though . I bought mine from southern seed near Rolla.
Yes - it is a coated seed
