Apache was bred to be more resistant to several viruses that were decimating older Arrowleaf Clover varieties, making it more productive and vigorous than many varieties available at that time. Good for hay/pasture production, wildlife and cover crops/soil improvement, furnishes pollen and nectar for honeybees and can increase populations of beneficial predatory insects. This clover has been very important in forage systems across the southern regions. Recommended 10-12 lbs. per acre.
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.
