Certified organic Harmonie Red Clover is from DSV, provide by Byron Seeds LLC.
Certified organic Harmonie Red clover is an early/medium red clover with good persistence and disease resistance. Red clovers is a legume that is widely grown throughout the United States. Harmonie Red Clover works well for cover crop, rotational grazing or wet hay. Red clover does better than alfalfa in areas with low soil pH or fertility and poor soil drainage. Harmonie Red clover is a solid yield performer with more persistence than older common varieties.
Organic Harmonie Red clover production during the second year is generally higher than during either the first or third years. The weather influences red clover growth much more than deeper-rooted alfalfa. If summer rain fall is good, clover may be cut about every 35 to 40 days. Growth should be removed after “freezedown.” Leaving the growth on a field during fall and winter can kill the stand. Red clover stands that are one year old or older should be cut three or four times in a season. Harvesting in drought conditions will also thin stands.
Harmonie Red clover can be sown by itself or in mixtures with small grains, sorghum-sudans, and/or cools-season grasses. Seed at 5-15 pounds per acre. Planting depth should be 0.25 to 0.50 inch. Red clover can also be established by frost-seeding (broadcasting on frozen or snow-covered ground).
Red clover requires soil pH to be 6.0 or higher. Red clover is responsive to phosphorus and potassium. Apply to soil testing recommendations.
