Northern Clover Release can be broadcast into areas with minimal plant competition such as a new plot or one where a seedbed has recently been prepared. It’s important that the seeds aren’t covered with more than 1/2” of soil. It can also be planted by using a no-till drill or other seeding device at a depth of 1/2 to 3/4". It can also be broadcast into an existing summer cover crop to extend the growing season into the fall and winter.
During the late summer, Northern Clover Release should be planted 6-8 weeks before the first expected frost of the season. It’s important that there’s adequate soil moisture or a good chance of rain in the forecast. This blend can also be planted during the spring when the soil temperature at 2” deep at 9:00 AM is 45 degrees or warmer. There are lots of websites that report the current soil temperature daily for each county.
Plant 20 pounds per acre when seeding with a no-till drill or other planting implement and 30 pounds per acre when broadcasting.
