Default Whitetail University Imperial Clover is.......

SLOW GOING! I planted about 1/2 acre with the Imperial Clover/Chickory mix. I had to mow it twice to choke out the weeds, but now th clover is hovering at about 3 inches...thats it. I know the rain or lack of it has to do with the growth not being what I expected. I will look forward to the early fall when I can see progress, as welll as add the rape and, and other mixes I want to add.

It hasnt rained for over 8 days and the ground is all dried up. Im praying for a downpour to soak my plot.

My other, Alfa Rack Plus is growing fine, I guess Alfalfa is better with the weather we've had.

Anyone else having difficult with their Whitetail Clover?

Clover is not a fast growing plant. It's a perennial andtakes time to establish.

A few years ago after I planted my fall plot in early Sept (Buck Forage Oats) I overseeded with Yuchi Arrowleaf Clover. In Dec my clover started coming up and inJan it was big enough for the deer to start grazing, just before the bucks started rut. There was goodsuppplemental feed for post rut stressbucks and the fresh bred does. Now the clover has died down and when I disc the plots in Sept the seed will cut in and the process will be repeated. I havn't planted clover in close to 5 years and I have a nice stand every year.

My white clover plots usually don't grow seriously until Year #2 - especially with Spring Plantings.
One good thing - It doesn't need to be tall to be effective. A low growing clover plot is easy to maintain as well.
