Pub of the Month: Red and White Clover Report 2021—PR-800  

Gene Olson, UK forage variety testing coordinator, continues to release industry leading publications for KY producers. Gene runs the largest forage testing program in the region and his reports are also used by all our surrounding states. Several reports are already available and the remainder should be online by the new year. Figure 1 shows the stand survival results from the red clover variety test planted spring of 2020. Notice that several entries are thinning by the end of the second growing season. This report confirms that improved varieties adapted for KY are well worth the money. Make sure to check out Gene’s variety reports before purchasing seed. Also, buy or preorder your clover seed for 2022 frost seedings now since quantities will likely be limited with the heat wave in Oregon last summer. Download this publication here.
