I was hoping I could just continue to use grass-killing herbicides to control the grasses, and mowing to contain the broadleaf weeds.
Hoping to spray this weekend.

We've used Mammoth Red Clover in several of our plots the past three years with GREAT results. We've planted it in some rough ground and it has produced very well. Red clover is a staple in our fall plantings.

I don't care for anything but white ladino because from my experience it never gets too large for them to feed on and they pound it all year long. However I made the mistake of planting yucchi arrowleaf and some of the plot mixes has the red in it and this stuff always gets so large you could bale it. It is a nuisance to replant over as it leaves large amounts of body sized thatch that we have to remove from the fields. So from here out I will be planting white ladino only. The clover below was almost impossible to clean up the next fall when it was about 3 ft tall and dried. Looked great in spring but by the time it gets this tall as in the photo......the deer have quit hitting it as it looses it's palatability.



In the photo below is pic of same field and you can see how much of a mess it has become......white clover does not do this in mid summer.....see pic below from yesterday!!!



Yesterdays White advantage ladino!!! still fresh because it thrives in shaded areas and the deer are pounding the 150 yard long field!

BSK, I use Med Red & Crimson in my LC mix. The clovers last all summer. Timely mowing & Clethodim keep them mostly weed free & palatable all summer.

If we could keep the mowed in a timely manner I would do this....but it isn't logistically possible at this time and spraying over 45 fields isn't affordable either.....but if money were no object I would! Good info! and good for you!! \:\)

Retirement & living on my farm does make a difference. Now if I can figure out how to pay for a notil drill things will get even better.

That's going to be my biggest problem switching to no-till plot management.

We spray our clover with a light portion of gly and it kills the grasses and the clover does just fine. Which I think someone told me that the gly we get is now called Cornerstone
