Does well on soils where the true clovers have problems.
Does well on soils where the true clovers have problems. Due to its large, deep taproot and substantial root branching, it does a great job breaking up heavy or compacted soils. A good plant for bringing nutrients from deep in the sub-soil to the upper horizon. Plants grow from 90-150 cm (3-5') tall. This plant can self seed readily. Plant at 13.5 kgs/hectare (12 lbs/acre).

How To Grow
Good seed to soil contact is required for any successful seeding. Begin with a finely prepared seedbed that is as free of weeds/debris as possible and firm with a stiff rake or roller. Sow seed 1.25 cm (1/2") deep in spring or again in September. Late fall seeding around mid-October until winter arrives (known as dormant seeding) generally ensures that no seed will germinate until spring as the soil is too cold. Spring's warm rains and snow melt will be enough to initiate germination.
