Frosty Berseem Clover
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.

My order came complete and on time. Since I just broadcasted it one month ago, it's not yet produced a stand. I'm hopeful it will grow very well with my brome grass.
The staff at SSC was very helpful and the company is one of the few that carry OMRI certified Frosty Berseem. I'm very excited about this clover since it high protein and is nitro-fixing without fungus problems or causing bloat in my horses.
