best fertilize for Ladino cloverContributors to this thread:
Frost seeded yesterday with Ladino clover and chicory. Also speed 200 lbs of 0-0-62. (S/E Michigan) I plan on hitting the plot with Imox & Nitro-surf once the weeds start to grow. I would like to fertilize the plot but I'm not sure what to apply. Any suggestions? My soil test indicated I'm short on potash. Everything else is ok...
I use 0-20-20
Not know exactly what your test stated. For me I put down 2-10-40 with Borax. My clover likes Borax .. Ed
Whatever is recommended by your soil test. Which can be done, by an Ag extension agency or Land Grant University, a heck of a lot cheaper than the piece of wasted fertilizer.
My soil tests say to top dress after cuttings 0 nitrogen, 20-30lb phosphorus and 90 potassium
Teeton, my boron levels are low (0.4 ppm) and I’ve been wanting to apply borax. How much do you apply and I assume you mix it with your dry fertilizer? Thanks
Research gypsum for clover fertilizer. It can have a huge affect on clover palatability. Good stuff!
Careful with boron, it doesn't take much per acre and there is a risk of toxicity.
BullBuster,, It was part of the 2-10-40 fertilizer. I just put down the required potassium, the boron came with the fertilizer .
