Ok I will bite. Arrowleaf is an annual that will either need to be reseeded every year or managed for reseeding. The advantage is low bloat potential and reseeds well.edrsimms":l65edtu8 said:Triplejbarnes, I am going to save you some valuble time, so you will indeed prosper in 2010. You can thank me in February, when you will be cashing in on great grazing, not to mention an increase in soil Nirtogen. Do youself a favor and get some Apache Arrowleaf Clover from Athens Seed in Watkinsville, GA.
It comes in 50 lb bags for $105 and it is pre-innoculated and ready to plant. PLANT in OCT!
Planting rate is 10 lbs per acre and I would recommend you used a no-till drill with a small seed box and a big box and plant a Nursecrop of Oats at 10+ lbs per acre along with your clover at 10lbs per acre.
For information about Apache Arrowleaf don't depend on Athens Seed to help you, as they know very little about the product, but instead go to the source; which is East Texas Seed Company, Tyler, Texas. They have an 800 number, so just call them. Like I said you can thank me another day.
