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

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
