Frosty Berseem Clover (60 days)

Untreated, and with "Nitro-Coat" (Organic OMRI Listed). An inert clay coating for easier planting.

Berseem Clover is a summer annual which is an excellent cover crop well suited to winter-kill situations.  Adding up to 8 tons of forage per acre if watered properly, it can fix from 125-200 pounds of nitrogen per acre.  As a green manure, Berseem adds a ton of biomass to the soil - not only accumulating Nitrogen, but adding over 3,500 pounds per acre of organic matter to the soil each year.  It can be used as a companion crop if planted with Oats or hay, and is a fast growing forage for your animals - with up to 25% protein, it is better than crimson clover or alfalfa.
