Alyce Clover Use Map
This annual, warm season legume may reach a height of 60”. Perfect for pasture, forage, hay, erosion control on newly established terraces and soil improvement and conservation. It dries rapidly as hay and can be baled as early as one day after cutting. Seed yield and retention in pods is excellent. It flourishes in well-drained soils with good fertility, including upland sands or flat woods with good drainage. Under wet conditions, it acts like a perennial. It tolerates up to six months of dry seasons and may behave as an annual in drier regions. Alyce Clover does not perform favorable in waterlogged conditions, but does tolerate short-term flooding.
