Description

Liflex White Clover is an early maturing variety. It is a long-lived perennial that spread by creeping above ground stems or stolons that root at the nodes. It is a medium leaf clover, very high in protein, vitamins, and minerals. Addition of white clover to pastures will increase daily dry matter intake in livestock. Liflex is an excellent legume to use in combination with other legumes and grasses. It will product large amounts of nitrogen which in turn feeds the grass sward within the pasture.

Management

White clover is primarily a pasture-type clover. When planted with perennial grasses should be grazed or mowed frequently (2-3 times per summer) with the final mowing in late August. Fertilizer should be applied throughout the year. To manage the bloat risk associated with clovers, manage your pasture swards with no more than a 10% stand of clover. Do not over-graze the grasses below 4 inches for this increases the clover concentration.

Establishment

White clover will thrive on soils with a pH of 5.5 or higher. White clover needs adequate phosphorus and potassium for establishment, persistence and growth. White clover is especially responsive to cool, moist conditions. It grows best between 50 degrees F and 85 degrees F. Because of its shallow root system, it is not adapted to shallow, droughty soils. White clovers can be broadcasted, frost-seeded, or drilled into soil. Seed depth should not exceed 0.25 inch. Broadcasting 3-5 lbs/A or drilled 1-3 lbs/A.
