Trifolium incarnatum Annual cool season legume cover crop.

Showiest of all the clovers with bright crimson spikes. Often used in landscaping and erosion control for its beauty, cold and shade tolerance, and reseeding ability.

  • Application Rate: 0.25-0.5" depth at 0.5-2 lb/1000 sq ft or 20-40 lb/acre
  • Inoculant: None needed, seed is nitrocoated
  • Germination: 5-10 Days
  • Plant Height: 18"
  • Uses: Cover crop, erosion control, green manure, pastures
  • Facts to Note: Seed in the fall. Tolerates a minimum temperature of 10°F. Good for pastures and can easily be overgrazed; animals love it. 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.

Note to Certified Organic Growers: All our cover crop seed is untreated, non-GMO seed. This is conventional seed, but all seeds are coated with Nitro-Coat Organic, which is an OMRI listed coating. 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.

Good Quality Seed

Sat in my garage after being opened for a year and they still germinated very well even with the nitro coating starting to flake off .

generous amount of seed for the price

I find the seed very fairly priced for my needs and looks to be of good quality. The 1lb amount will last me a long time. I am using the seed as a combination cover crop for my veggie garden, under fruit trees and also as honey bee forage for my hives. I just planted recently and only gave the seed a 4 since I can not yet include the germination rate as part of my review.
