Planting Instructions

Clover Select performs best when the soil pH is in a 6.0 to 7.0 range.  A soil test is encouraged to determine your soils pH and fertility requirements prior to planting.  Select a site with medium to heavy soils that receives 4-6 hours of sunlight per day.

 

  • Add the recommended amount of lime suggested on your soil test.  If a soil test was not performed, add 600 lbs. of lime per ¼ acre to adjust your soil pH.  Once applied, work the lime into the soil using a disk or tiller.

 

  • Add the recommended amount of fertilizer suggested on your soil test.  If a soil test was not performed, add 75 lbs. of 6-24-24 or similar, low nitrogen fertilizer, per ¼ acre.  Work the fertilizer into the top few inches of the soil.  No deeper than 3 inches if possible.

 

  • Prepare the seedbed with a cultipacker, roller or drag.

 

  • Broadcast the seed at the suggested rate of 2 lbs. per ¼ acre.

 

  • If using a cultipacker or roller, roll over the seedbed to ensure proper contact with the soil.  If using a drag, DO NOT DRAG the seed in.  This could bury the seed too deep.  Simply allow the seed to settle into the soil.

 

*If using a drill, set the machine to plant at an average depth of 1/8 -  ¼ inch.

Plot Maintenance

Fertilizing:  Perennial food plots should be fertilized each Spring, or can be broken out into two applications, with one in the Spring and another in late Summer.  A soil test will tell the appropriate amount of fertilizer, and possibly save money.  If a soil test is not taken, fertilize with 75 lbs. of 0-20-20 or similar, low nitrogen fertilizer, per ¼ acre.  This rate can be split into two parts if fertilizing in the Spring and late Summer. 

 

*It is important to check pH levels each year to maintain the proper range to ensure nutrients are available for uptake by the plants.

 

Mowing:  Mowing perennial food plots will help keep unwanted grass and weeds out along with promoting new, more palatable growth.  Two to three mowings per growing season will typically suffice.  Avoid mowing when conditions are hot and dry, when plant may be stressed.

 

Herbicide:  Mowing can be very effective at keeping broadleaf weeds out, but grasses can be more difficult and still cause problems.  If grasses are still a problem a selective herbicide with an active ingredient such as clethodim or sethoxydim can be used.   *Adding an adjuvant such as crop oil or surfactant make herbicides much more effective.
