Methods Of Seeding

It is a common practice to sow clover in the

spring, either with spring grain or with wheat or rye previously seeded

in the fall. This method has much to commend it. The cost of making the

seed-bed is transferred to the grain crop, and there is little outlay

other than the cost of seed. Wheat and rye offer better chances to the

young clover plants than do the oat crop which shades the soil densely

and ripens later in the summer. The amount of seed that should be used

depends upon the soil, the length of time the sod will stand, and the

purpose in growing the clover. When soil fertility is the one

consideration, 12 to 15 pounds of bright, plump medium red clover seed

per acre should be sown.
