The Pennington Patriot White Clover is a cool season perennial legume that is best utilized to enriched grass pasture. It contains 18 to 28 percent crude protein and complete digestible nutrients ranging from 65 to 85 percent. For convenient seeding and excellent nitrogen fixation, it is pre-inoculated and lime coated. The patriot improves animal performance and it features upright aggressive growth with large leaf to compete with weeds and grasses, high yields, tremendous persistence under grazing pressure and tolerance to acidic soils and low management situations. Plus, it produces its own nitrogen to minimize fertilizer costs. White Clover Patriot will surely endure for several years because it can survive to any climatic conditions. It is best for deer, quail, rabbit and turkey.
Rate:3 lbs./acre drilled or broadcast into established pastures; 5 lbs./acre for a pure stand.
Date:September-November in the Southern U.S. Frost seeded - February and March. Spring seeded in late March or April.
Method: Graze or clip pasture close prior to seeding.
Depth: 1/4“ maximum; many stand failures result from seed planted too deep.
Fertilizer: Liming to a pH of 6.0 and providing adequate levels of potassium and phosphorus are necessary to ensure a productive clover stand. Soil testing is highly recommended. See your local county extension office for details.
Patriot is pelletized with a coating of lime and selected Rhizobia strains for optimal nitrogen fixation, and once established and nodulated, will not require the addition of nitrogen. Clip or harvest surplus forage in understocked pastures. Under continuous grazing, keeping the grass height at 2 to 6“ will help maintain the clover and control the grass and weeds.
Bloat can be a problem for animals on pastures with a large proportion (>35%) of white clover. Bloat-preventative supplement materials are recommended.
