Northern Clover Release can be used to establish new or improve existing stands of clover. It includes four varieties of clover, alfalfa, three brassicas, and buckwheat at a ratio that’s appropriate for most areas north of I-70. This blend provides lots of high-quality forage while improving soil quality. It’s very attractive to deer and turkeys. 

All the clovers and alfalfa are pre-inoculated with Exceed Precoat from Visjon Biologics, an OMRI approved, long lasting formulation chocked full of bacteria that will take nitrogen from the atmosphere and convert it to plant-available forms of nitrogen for the clover and alfalfa plants.

Also includes Elevate Ag’s HyprGerm biological stimulant applied right on the seed. HyprGerm contains nutrients, hormones and enzymes from kelp extract, worm castings, chitosan, and humic acid for increased seed germination, plant vigor, root growth and soil biological stimulation. Healthier and more vigorous plants will lead to healthier animals and bigger antlers!

Planting Instructions
Northern Clover Release can be broadcast into areas with minimal plant competition such as a new plot or where the existing vegetation has been terminated. It’s important that the seeds aren’t covered with more than 1/2” of soil when planting. It can also be planted by using a no-till drill or other seeding device at a depth of 1/4 to 1/2". If it is broadcast into an existing summer cover crop it can extend a plot’s ability to attract and feed deer during the fall and winter and into the spring!
Timing
Northern Clover Release should be planted 6-8 weeks before the first expected frost of the fall season. It’s important that there’s adequate soil moisture or a good chance of rain in the forecast. This blend can also be planted during the spring when the soil temperature at 2” deep at 9:00 AM is 45 degrees or warmer. There are lots of websites that report the current soil temperature daily for each area.
Seeding Rate
Plant 20 pounds per acre when seeding with a no-till drill or other planting implement and 30 pounds per acre when broadcasting.
