- Also known as “broadleaf birdsfoot trefoil,” this long-lived, deep-rooted perennial forage legume is used for pasture, hay and silage. It grows on many different soil types, from sandy loams to clays.It accepts poorly-drained, droughty, infertile, acid or mildly alkaline soils. Most productive on fertile, well-drained soils with a pH of 6.2-6.5 or higher
- Inoculated Seed – We now offer birdsfoot trefoil seed that has been coated with an inoculant for better establishment. The weight of the seed will contain approximately 34% coating material that contains the inoculant material.
- The coating material also helps hold moisture in during germination for better establishment and viability of the seed. There is no difference in the seeding rates between the coated and raw seed due to the increased germination and viability of the seed that is coated and inoculated.
- The nutritive value equals that of alfalfa, and there is no apparent problem from bloat, evern where pure stands are grazed. Birdsfoot trefoil should be seeded with grasses for optimum forage production such as: timothy, smooth brome, orchardgrass, tall fescue, and perennial ryegrass. Also attracts deer, turkey, and rabbit.
- Our seeds/bulbs are guaranteed to be fresh but are NOT guaranteed as to results. Sorry, but there are too many variables in gardening that can impact germination. Flower seeds/bulbs are a live organism. Their germination depends on many factor including heat, cooling, sun, shade, moisture, time of sowing, etc. None of these things We can control so We can not be held responsible for them. So please do not ask for a refund, replacement or to return unused seeds/bulbs.
