Overview

Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover is a biennial legume clover crop. Yellow Blossom blooms a few weeks earlier than White Blossom and is a favorite for cover cropping. It produces a large amount of biomass and can generate a quite a bit of nitrogen. With its long tap roots, it is also noted for scavenging excess nutrients in the soil and helping improve soil drainage. Yellow Blossom is also a favorite of honey bees, and is commonly planted as an insectary crop. Sweet Clovers have a poor feed value and are not recommended for livestock feed or forage.

Grower’s Note: These seeds are not pre-inoculated. Sweet clovers are part of the legume family and may require inoculant treatment for best results. Plants in the legume family benefit tremendously from adding rhizobacteria or “inoculant” to the seed. The bacteria added to the seed forms a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with the legume plant roots. The bacteria help capture nitrogen from the air and makes it available to the plant roots which improves overall plant growth. Unless sweet clover has been grown in the field within the last three years, it is best to inoculate seed right before planting. We offer a full selection of inoculants based on species. Please follow the instructions that come with the inoculant for best results.
