Crimson Clover

Crimson Clover should be utilized as a winter annual clover to fix atmospheric as well as soil nitrogen up to 100# N/acre.  Crimson will winter kill in the northern states most years, but should overwinter in the south.  Deep set roots improve soil tilth and overall soil condition.  Planting crimson clover with a grass or small grain is an excellent cover crop option for erosion and weed control as well as offering the ability to be grazed.
