WHITE CLOUD Crimson Clover is the only white flowered Trifolium incarnatum cultivar in the US, if not the world. Found in a crimson clover production field and subjected to six cycles of intense recurrent phenotypic selection, WHITE CLOUD is truly white with white seeds.

When compared to Dixie Crimson Clover, WHITE CLOUD Crimson Clover provides faster forage, higher protein and increased nitrogen production. 

WHITE CLOUD Crimson Clover is much sweeter than other crimson clovers thus will attract deer and wildlife best above all other crimson clovers.  This is due to the lack of red coloration.  There are lower levels of bitter anthocyanins, so palatability, and thus, intake, will be higher. Though not statistically quantified, anecdotal evidence have shown that WHITE CLOUD is preferred by hunters and grazers over other palatable forage clovers.


Planting

Planting of crimson clover can occur throughout much of the year depending on the farmers goal. A successful broadcast seeding, is directly correlated to the amount of soil moisture or rainfall that is present after the application. A fall planting should occur 6-8 weeks before the first killing frost date if winterkill is a concern for your area. Emergence will occur within 7-10 days.
