Frosty Berseem Clover has many uses from thickening up a declining stand of alfalfa to providing short season forage in late spring and summer.  From fixing nitrogen in a cover crop situation to attracting wildlife in a food plot.  Aggressive growth and low hard seed count.  Quick establishment.  Dries down similar to alfalfa.  In a 2015 Penn State trial, Frosty Berseem was the #1 spring planted forage with a dry matter yield of 4.39 tons per acre.   Prefers slightly alkaline loam and silty soils with a pH of 6+.  Planting window for Indiana, Ohio and southern Michigan is April 1st to May 15th.  Recommended seeding rate is 15 lbs/acre drilled in a monoculture stand to 5-7 lbs/acre in a mix.  Planting depth is 1/4″.  If broadcasting, 25 lbs/acre monoculture or 12-16 lbs/acre in a mix.
