I planted this the last week of February last year. I've fertilized it and limed it and the deer, hogs, and turkeys love it. My best work yet. 6 acres of pure clover. I planted some chickory on the side of it today too.

Date:03-May-18

Date:03-May-18

John....did you plant that clover in Feb. of ‘17 or ‘18? I’m assuming ‘17. If it was just this past Feb., that’s even more amazing!

Date:04-May-18

Wow! I need a run down on the type, planting time and so on. Looks great!

Date:04-May-18

Dang, that’s an outstanding clover plot!!! What strain of white clover did you use?

Great looking clover. My clover is only 2" high this spring. How can this clover be so far ahead of mine?

This plot is in South Arkansas. Durana clover was planted in Feb 2017 and this pic was May 1, 2018

Date:04-May-18

Needs to be mowed.

Date:04-May-18

Brass, how did u plant? Did you work the ground or frost seed?

Great looking plot congratulations Lewis

Date:04-May-18

dm/wolf.... when you say it needs to be mowed, why is that? I'm very interested.

Date:04-May-18

Cleared the hardwoods with dozer, used a landscape rake on most of it to smooth and kick up rocks, limed at $40/ton and fertilized, cultipacked the whole 6 acres once, spread seed with a moultrie seeder behind UTV, mixed sand with Durana clover to get better coverage. I did not use cultipacker after seed was down.

Date:04-May-18

the double bull is about 45 yards from the timber to give you some scale of reference

I'll bet even the honeybees are working that clover pretty good.

Snow cover is finally gone from all of mine. We overseeded them and this morning I can see pretty good growth, I have high hopes they look like that in a couple of months!

The plot thickens, pun intended, I got a pic of a hen turkey and hogs in the trap in the background!

"How to Maintain Clover Mowing: Mowing clover plots is one of the most important practices to ensure a healthy stand of clover. It is important not to let your clover get above 8 inches or so. When clover gets taller and more mature, the stem gets stronger in order to support the plant. This is when clover is less palatable for deer and loses its nutritional value. Depending on rainfall, a good stand of clover should be cut at least 4 times a year. If you cut clover past this height it will put a lot of stress on the plant. Always keep an eye on the forecast and plan your cuts around a heavy rain, this will allow it to bounce right back. Cutting clover also helps with suppressing weeds."

I used to have plots like that when I had private land .. I miss doing them... not being able to do them is a YUUUge draw back of being stuck to State/Public lands now .. that one looks awesome !!

I planted a new plot on my son's property in fall of 2016. 2017 spring it was knee high and thick. I didn't mow it and by fall it was 100% gone.

Looks awesome...thanks for the post!
