Type of fertilizer for a clover spot?


Recommended Posts

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

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.
