Trifolium incarnatum Annual cool season legume cover crop.
Showiest of all the clovers with bright crimson spikes on 18" plants. Often used in landscaping and erosion control for its beauty, cold and shade tolerance, and reseeding ability. Fixes 80 lb of Nitrogen per acre, and is used as a cover crop in grain rather than row crop rotations, because it matures late. Also good for pastures and can easily be overgrazed. Animals love it. Tolerates a minimum temperature of 10°F. Seed in fall to a 0.25"-0.5 depth at 0.5-2 lb/1000 sq ft or 20-40 lb/acre. (No inoculant needed)

This coating uses all organic ingredients: the proper rhizobacteria, a Calcium Carbonate coating that is naturally water absorbing to speed seed germination, and an OMRI listed organic adhesive.
