“Dixie” provides excellent forage for wildlife and livestock. Most growers put it in a mix with oats, rye or ryegrass and then add some radish or kale. For cover crops, a three-way mix of Cosaque oats, Sodbuster Radish and 5 - 10 lbs. of “Dixie” is very popular. The “Dixie” is the plant providing the Nitrogen. This works more for late planted spring crops such as cotton, soybeans, grain sorghum, peanuts or late corn. It provides 50 to 120 lbs. of Nitrogen as well as several tons of organic matter. Very helpful in Fall cover mixes unless terminating early.
Crimson Clover prefers heavy soils but it will grow almost anywhere. Ideal pH is between 5.5 and 6.8, with an ideal soil temperature of 45 °F. The seed is best planted in early September, at a depth less than 1/4". It captures its own Nitrogen, but add Phosphorus and Potash based on a soil test. Our Crimson Clover is pre-inoculated. It will come up quickly but won’t show much growth until Spring. It gives abundant grazing during February and March.
