Going to frost seed Ladino clover over an existing 3ac clover food plot. How many pounds of Ladino seed should I apply per AC??

From: woodstick
I do 5 lb/acre. You can do less on bare dirt or decent clover. Just for rehab on existing clover, 5 works for me.

Depends some on your existing clover. Thin stands, I’d go a tad heavier, thicker stands, a bit less. On average, like woodstick stated, 5 lbs is a pretty good average. More than that won’t hurt a thing. Just costs a bit more. I always go a bit on the heavy side.

Thanks for the info....

Depends on how bad (weedy) your exiting clover is. Do you want more clover then existing weeds or do you have bare dirt where you want to thicken clover?

I tried to "rehab" frost seeding a weedy clover plot - very poor results.

If the snow is gone and not too muddy try running a light harrow over it first. Much better catch. Hit with you fav clover friendly herbicide early May.

My food plot is fairley weedy. I have a disk that doesn't dig-in very deep. Do you think running the disk over the field prior to frost seeding will work??

From: t-roy
I don’t see it hurting anything, c5ken. The only potential negative might be that you would possibly bring up some additional weed seeds.

Thanks for the info.

I think I'll try a light disking prior to frost seeding
