Alyce Clover Seed For Food Plots Facts

Alyce Clover in Food Plot

Alysicarpus vaginalis

Alyce clover is a summer legume that has approximately 15 - 18 % crude protein. When Alyce is used as a grazing crop it should be inoculated with inoculants for alyce clover at planting to improve growth, if the seed is not already inoculated.

Alyce clover is an annual clover which can be planted with other legumes such as cowpeas or other perennials. It is very attractive to deer and is one of the most popular clovers used in plantings for wildlife. Plant at the rate of 15 to 20 lb. per acre in the early spring when danger of frost is over. The clover seeds are very small and must not be planted over 1/4 inch deep. The best planting method for wildlife plots is to lightly drag over the area to slightly cover the seed.

Planting Alyce Clover

Dates: May-July, Reseed annually. Plant 15-20 lbs. per acre

Depth: 1/4" -  Roll or culti-pack for best results.

Use: For pasture use and wildlife food plots for deer, turkeys and rabbits

Maintenance and Fertilization of Alyce Clover

A soil test will determine the fertilization requirements for alyce clover. Lime soils to pH of 5.5 to 6.2. Fertilize with 60 lbs. of phosphate and potash per acre. N is not required. You should lime every 2-3 years to maintain pH. Mow or graze to control weeds once establishment starts. Allow plants to seed out in the fall so they may re-seed in spring with light harrowing to improve germination. As stands decrease you may need to apply additional seeds for reseeding.

Adaptation

Alyce Clover grows an average of 12-24 inches in height, although it may reach heights of 60" if not grazed or harvested for hay. Alyce clover is a warm season tropical annual plant that can be slow to establish. Alyceclover is adapted to well-drained soils with good fertility. These can be either upland sands or flat woods with good drainage. Plant on moderate to well-drained soils in the Southeast.

Preparing To Plant Alyce Clover

Multiple plowings to reduce weed competition helps the establishment of Alyce Clover. Weeds and grasses will NOT allow germination to occur. Alyce clover may be overseeded into a grass sod. The sod should be grazed or mowed closely to remove excess forage and cut with a medium-to-lightweight disk or chopper before seeding. The purpose of this cultivation is not to destroy the sod but to expose some soil so that seed can come in direct contact with it when planted. If a pasture drill is used, disking may be eliminated, but the sod must be closely grazed before planting.

Best For: Deer, Turkey, Rabbit, and Quail food plots.

Alyce Clover - Additional Information

Alyce clover was introduced from southern Asia and is well adapted to the South. It is used for hay, pasture and cover crop in the Southeastern US states. Alyce is a low spreading, branchy and leafy plant. It can grow to 3 feet in height and make a very thick stand. Cattle will usually graze Alyce clover either green or when dry.

Alyce is a summer annual and produces mature seeds in the fall (October). If cut early for hay, a second growth will usually produce a seed crop. Hay should be cut in early bloom and raked as soon as it dries. Alyce tends to dry easily and can usually be baled the day following cutting. Alyce clover prefers sandy loams, but has perform well on improved soils, except for very light or wet soils. Use 200 to 400 pounds of super-phosphate fertilizers on poor soils. It is not generally responsive to lime. It can also be planted in 24 to 30 inch rows and cultivated when weeds are a problem (Usually cultivate twice). Planted seeds should be inoculated if the have not already been done.
