    More alfalfa and red-clover seed should be imported from Can- ada at times of domestic shortage, if supplies are available there, for Canadian seed is adapted to corn-belt conditions. 2. Efforts should be made to increase the amount of alfalfa and red-clover seed grown in Illinois and in the nation as a . Red clover is a legume that is widely grown throughout the United States as a hay or forage crop. Red clover does better than alfalfa in areas with low soil pH or fertility, and poor soil drainage. Improved red clovers are a fast-starting, highly productive and more persistent than older common types. Red clovers are short-lived perennials that will persist 3 to 4 years. Red clovers can be.

    Red Clover Red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) is grown throughout the northeastern United States for forage and is used in rotations for soil improvement. It is adapted to areas with moderate summer temperatures and adequate moisture throughout the growing season. Unlike alfalfa, red clover will grow moderately well in slightly acid soils File Size: 30KB. The most widely planted forage legume after alfalfa. Red clover performs better than alfalfa on acid or wet soils. Faster establishing than alfalfa. This legume is often used in grass mixtures predominantly for a cutting regime. Clovers are best cut for hay when in full bloom. If cut earlier, it is more difficult to cure. Cut later, it loses palatability. Red clovers are more drought tolerant.

    Lactation performance and nutrient intake responses caused by forage type (red clover vs. alfalfa), maturity (early vs. late), and equivalent acid detergent fiber (ADF) content (yr 1, late alfalfa vs. late red clover; yr 2, early alfalfa vs. late red clover) were by: This note is a brief summary of results obtained in from one white clover, five alfalfa, and three red clover trials. Yields in the seeding year, and from the first full year of production thereafter, are not the best estimate of the full potential of most forage legumes. The third season stand and yield are a good measure of persistency with red clover and white : Roy E. Sigafus, Norman L. Taylor, Garry D. Lacefield, J. Kenneth Evans.

SUMMARY. This report is a summary of performance data collected from forage variety trials in Ohio duringincluding commercial varieties of alfalfa, red clover, white clover, orchardgrass, tall fescue and annual ryegrass in tests planted in to across three sites in Ohio: South Charleston, Wooster, and North Baltimore.

Red Clover Red clover is useful for short-term stands and on land where drainage is not suited for alfalfa. It can be high yielding and produce high-quality forage but typically is difficult to dry for haymaking.

Red clover is normally a two-year crop, including the year of establishment and one year of top production. • Compare the economics and performance of growing red clover versus alfalfa as the legume component Performance of alfalfa and red clover varieties in Ohio book hay grown for stored feed.

• Use results to understand what factors are limiting the success of alfalfa seeding on our farm and other farms in the area. SUMMARY. This report is a summary of performance data collected from forage variety trials in Ohio duringincluding commercial varieties of alfalfa, orchardgrass, tall fescue annual ryegrass and cover crops in tests planted in to across three sites in Ohio.

Alfalfa can be grazed as a single-species or mixed with grass. Horses prefer red and white clover species. Alfalfa and red clover can be appropriate pasture species for horses diagnosed with metabolic disorders. If your horse has a diagnosed metabolic disorder, work closely with your veterinarian and an equine nutritionist before grazing.

Because red clover tolerates more shade, it works well with grasses for pasture mix. Forage quality of red clover is similar to alfalfa, but it has the advantage of maintaining quality longer as it ages. Red clover seed is less costly than alfalfa, but Undersander recommends using the hardiest varieties when establishing a new : Loretta Sorensen.

Red Clover Alfalfa Digestibility (%) Figure 1. Digestibility of red clover and alfalfa as plants mature (From Buxton et al., ) producer a longer time over which high quality forage can be harvested. For maximum nutrient or milk per acre production, red clover should be harvested at early flower.

The quality of white clover is very high. It will not lignify in hot weather like alfalfa, red clover and grasses.

Like other legumes, white clover fixes its own nitrogen and will help supply nitrogen to other plants. White clover thrives under warm, moist conditions. Droughts, however, can be hard on white clover stands.

These species will most likely establish well and provide good yield until new stands can be re-established.

Long taproots break up compacted soil and bring up subsurface minerals. High nitrogen fixation and great bee forage. Sow early to midspring or in late summer (best time for weed competition), 1/2 lb./1, ( lb./acre) alone.

The National Alfalfa & Forage Alliance is an alliance between the growers, genetic suppliers and university segments of the alfalfa and alfalfa seed industry. Grandpa Ray Outdoor Owner John O’Brion talks about alfalfa vs clover food plots.

Grandpa Ray Outdoors specializes in providing the best nutrition for. Other pluses: Red clover seed is cheaper than alfalfa seed for producers, and red clover will now be easier to grow, thanks to the improved resistance and persistence of new varieties developed by ARS plant breeder Dick Smith.

(See "New Red Clover Puts Pastures in the Pink," Agricultural Research, Decemberp. 9.) In the summer of grass, bluegrass, timothy, red clover, alfalfa, and white clover are cool-season forages, while sorghum-sudan, bermudagrass, pearl millet, and big bluestem are warm-season species.

Red clover will now be easier for farmers to grow, thanks to new red clover varieties developed by ARS. In the summer ofARS released newer red clover varieties that should persist 12 to 15 months longer than older red clover varieties. Seed will be available to farmers in about two years.I was thinking of planting either red clover or alfalfa this year and plowing it under in the fall or planting amid the plants the next spring.

I've read that alfalfa takes less water, but .Alsike clover grows well in poorly drained soil and offers high forage quality, similar to alfalfa. Arrowleaf Clover Arrowleaf is a drought-hardy clover with very distinct arrowhead-shaped leaves, pronounced veins, and distinguishing white markings.
