ALSIKE Clover is a short-lived perennial plant which lacks persistence so is treated agriculturally as a biennial. It is grown widely in the eastern and northern mid-western states, and in the Pacific Northwest. Similar in many ways to red clover, it matures a week to ten days earlier. It is especially well adapted to cool climates and wet soils, will tolerate flooding for considerable periods. It will also produce well on well-drained soils.
ADAPTABILITY: Alsike Clover Does well on soils too acidic for red clover, and will tolerate more alkalinity than most clovers; however, it responds to lime application. May be readily established on poorly drained or overflow land. Usually produces only one hay crop a year. Fits well in pasture mixes for wet lands. Alsike tends to lodge badly; a companion crop is desirable for hay production. Flowers are pink or white.
SEEDING RATE: 6- 8 lbs/acre.
