Type of fertilizer for a clover spot?

6 posts in this topic

Any recommendations on the type/percentage on clover food plots? A generic 10-10-10 or should it be a higher nitrogen like a 27-10-10? Also, spring and fall fertilizing or just spring?

Clover actually doesn't need N. It needs P and even more K. Talk with the local fertilizer supplier and they will tell you more about the fertilizer blends that they have available.

After calling around I can get some 17-16-17 for $15.00 for 40 pounds or I can get some 27-13-14 for $12 for some 50 pound bags. Think I'll be going with the 27-13-14...

I would recomend the lower nitrogen one honestly. all you need is some potash. depending on your soil test.

Agree, I usually fertilize my clover with 9-23-30 or 5-14-42.

Or skip the nitrogen altogether and buy just the potash like code-man suggests.

The more nitrogen you use in clover, the more your weeds will like it mad.gif

Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
