Exceptional soil builder. Good for deer and livestock as a high protein forage/hay. Valuable also for turkey and quail, especially as an insect attractant. Excellent for bees and other pollinators in the spring. Very good cold tolerance and reseeds itself readily. Plant 20-25 lbs per acre at ½” deep in Fall or Spring. This seed is coated and pre-inoculated, so no additional inoculation is needed.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
