I'm going to take 1 acre out of production and plant it to clover next year. It's been in beans for a couple of years and is pretty clean. It was double cropped and planted to wheat this fall but I'm going to hold it out next year and convert it to a food plot. Which clover variety works best for north central Kansas?

Durana Clover! It's sold by Pennington.

JSW, I would broadcast some white (Durano or Ladino) with a medium red clover right into the wheat. Do this late winter. After your farmer cuts the wheat you may be surprised as to how much clover is there. Just a thought, GL.

If my plots are temporary I plant Red and Crimson. My permanent plots are all in Ladino.

I have had good success with Alice white clover from Welter Seed. I have also used Durana and find it a bit more difficult to get established and it is more expensive if memory serves. But once it is going, it is good stuff. If it is going to be a temporary plot though, I would use red or crimson. My experience is in PA, so I am not sure how well it will do in Kansas.

It will be a permanent food plot. When the clover gives out, I'll rotate in something else and then do clover again, unless I find something I like better.
