Clovers are widely adapted legumes that improve forage production in several ways. They increase protein and mineral content of pastures, hay, and silage. Clovers can tolerate a wider range of soils and growing conditions than alfalfa. Most clovers can tolerate lower pH soils as well as poor drainage. Clovers mix well with many forage grasses, but can also be grown in pure stands. Clovers can be used for improving soil health, conservation, and honey production.
