Persian Clover Seed - Persian Clover is an annual grazing clover most commonly used for food plot, cattle forage, hay production and green manure. Persian clover is known for extremely high forage quality and palatability especially when blended with grass in the southern United States.  Also known for being highly attractive to deer nitrogen.  Persian Clover is low growing nitrogen producer, usually 6 inches tall but can reach up to 1 foot.  Persian Clover will reseed itself under perfect conditions. Persian clover produces small and very sweet pink-purple flowers approx. 110-150 days after germination.  Persian clover can be planted as early as the last chance of frost in the Spring or in the Fall. 

Persian Clover has a fair cold tolerance.  If extremely low temperatures occur for a period of time, then winterkill can be likely.  Persian clover has moderate salinity tolerance and average drought tolerance.  Preferred soils would be loamy clay or river bottom (poorly drained).

SEEDBED PREPARATION?Persian Clover may be overseeded into a grass sod. The sod should be grazed or mowed closely to remove excess forage and allow the clover to compete.  Cut with a medium-to-lightweight disk or chopper before seeding is acceptable. The purpose of this cultivation is not to destroy the sod but to expose some soil so that seed can come in direct contact with it when planted.  Broadcasting is a common application method to interseed in an existing pasture.  It is common to seed Persian clover with an annual winter grass.  To maintain a good stand of clover after grazing, don't allow livestock to consume below 2" of plant material and rotate animals regularly to prevent overgrazing.
