Balansa Clover

Crop TypeCool Season Legume
Seeds / Lb500,000
Minimum Germination Temperature42F

Balansa clover is like crimson clover but has increased cold tolerance and biomass production. It is extremely palatable, has good digestibility and high crude protein content (20%). Due to it’s low stature and ground-hugging nature, Balansa clover has been recorded surviving multiple days of sub-zero temperatures with snow cover. When Balansa is in it’s early rosette stage, above ground growth is limited because it is concentrating it’s energy on producing a taproot.
