Weight per bushel: 60lbs.

Seeds per pound: 260,000

Germinating time: 7 days

Fertilizer: At seeding, 120-140lbs., P205 and 120-140lbs., K20; for topdressing, 40-90lbs., P205 and 85-185lbs., K20 at medium soil test levels. Lower amounts needed when used as pasture.

pH Range: 5.8-6.5

Soil Adaptation: Well drained to moderately well drained loams and silt loam soils properly limed an fertilized.

Inoculation: Important! Cross-inoculates with alsike, crimson, ladino, and white clovers.

Planting: 45 days before last killing frost in spring, or 30 days before first killing frost in fall. Plant at 8-10lbs. alone; 2-6lbs. in mixtures. Plant in 6" - 8" rows or solid seeded usually with a grass. Broadcast or drill on small grain or closely grazed grass pasture in later winter or early spring.

Harvesting (hay): 1/4 - 1/3 bloom stage. Early harvesting for hay favors good seed yield by second crop. Second cutting of hay may cause slobbering in livestock.

Harvesting (seed): Cut with combine when heads have turned brown, flowers and stalks are deep yellow, and seeds have begun to show distinct violet color. Will shatter badly if cut late. May use a desiccant to aid in drying plant.

Approximate first harvest dates: Hay, June 1-June 20. Deed, August 15-September 1

Approximate Yield: Hay, 2-4 tons over season. Seed, 120-240lbs per acre.
