Seeding clover provides benefits for pastures
Placeholder Image
DODGEVILLE - Landowners and farmers in southwest Wisconsin are reminded that seeding clover in late winter improves pastures for the growing season. According to Gene Schriefer, agriculture agent for University of Wisconsin- Extension in Iowa County, when the snow is melted but the ground is frozen in late February to early April, freezing and thawing of the soil surface will plant small seeds that are broadcast on a closely grazed or mowed pasture. The reminder is part of the regional Grazing Broker project.
