White Clover Seed (Renovation)
Renovation white clover was bred specifically to turn old, unproductive pastures into healthy, profitable production centers.
- Renovation was bred for increased stolon density utilizing a combination of long-living Sothern Plain ecotypes and disease resistant ladino types. The result is increased persistence, even under grazing.
- Renovation has wider leaves, closer to ladino-type clovers. This means more forage and less weed pressure, even under grazing.
- Renovation is an excellent choice to improve and maintain healthy productive pastures. Renovation is ideal for all livestock.
- Renovation is an ideal legume for wildlife food plots, as a three-fold contributor: providing a high-protein food source, acting as a seasonal attractant, and contributing nitrogen to surrounding plants.
Fescue Toxicosis Mitigation
- When planted into toxic endophyte pastures, Renovation can help lessen the effects of endophyte toxicity and contribute to overall herd health.
- Pure Stand: 5 lbs. /ac
- With Grasses on Prepared Seedbed: 1-2 lbs. /ac
- Into Established Grass Pasture: 2-3 lbs. /ac
- Lower Southern USA: late fall
- Upper Southern USA: mid-late fall or early spring
- Northern USA: early fall or early spring
- Planting Depth: 1/8-1/4"
- Optimal pH Range: 6.0-6.5
Once established and properly managed, Renovation should provide numerous years of free nitrogen and protein-rich feed. Longevity will depend on location and management. In hotter regions, with predominately warm-season species, it should last at least 1-2 years, while in cooler climates it should live 3-5 years, or longer.
Broadcast 1 lb./acre of seed annually, or as needed. Researchers recommend 25-30% clover percentages in grass pastures. Bloat is a concern for pastures exceeding 35% white clover. The percentage of Renovation in a stand can be managed using these tools: grazing or mowing height, fertilization, and reseeding.
