Local MFA now carries a clover that is said to last up to 6 years per planting. 2 types one is Pioneer and the other the name starts with a D but not even sure how to think about spelling it At $6.5 per pound I figured I would ask if any body has tried any of them and how well did they do?? Thanks

Old, I spoke to the head of MFA's seed division and he told me that they "do not" have a 5-6 year clover. He indicated that their "best" clover was "Forage Master Red"...but that he would NEVER quote it as being a 5-6 year product. I also called Missouri Southern Seeds in Rolla, Mo. They too did not know of this kind of clover. They indicated that there were just too many diseases affecting clover.....thus he too thought the 5-6 year deal was incorrect.
Both company's said their "best" clover seeds would retail in the 2.50-3.50 per pound range.

I need to add that I'm not saying that what you've been told is incorrect. Most MFA exchanges have the freedom to sell whatever they want. I have to admit, a "6 year clover" really interests me. I too had never heard of it.

Try calling this number. It is the MFA in Lebanon MO 417-532-3174. That is the place I talked to and they have 2 types that they say will last up to 6 or more years one being pioneer

Out of curiosity, I called the MFA in Lebanon. 'Spoke to the manager...he was very helpful. They do indeed sell the clovers you mentioned. One is Durana, the second is called Patriot. Both are crosses of Jumbo Ladino clover and White Dutch clover. The "say" they have deeper, more profuse root systems thus giving them better longevity. Both are adapted to poorer soils with lower fertility. They indicated they yield more than the regular white dutch clover. They have sold these for 3 years now. They said that "most" of their sales of this product had gone to "production agriculture".....balance being food plots. They quoted me the $6.50 per pound rate...with 3 lb per acre seeding rate. I guess my thoughts (based upon what they told me) would be "buyer beware".

Durana did not come close to meeting my expectations when I tried it.

Ya I do not like the white Dutch type clovers due to the animals not eating it well so guess I'll stick with the Red clover and Sweet clovers I have always planted

I think the one you are talking about is Durana, I know nothing about it but am going to plant some clover this spring, Freedom cause it can dry like alfalfa, and mix it with tall fescue. Question for you, you know anything about sudangrass and berseem clover together , I plan on planting that on some ground I have rented, the rent is year to year, cause that is all they will do, and I have winter cereal rye planted on it right now. Any thoughts? Not to bug you.

Do not know any thing about Sudan grass or the other. In my area we have to much fescue so I try to plant things to help move it out and kill it off some

Hey Rich, I have bought seed from NIXA in Nixa Mo, many times. Very knowledgable and best price I could find.
