Crimson Clver tor.Huj or Med.
Crimson eloret (irifolium lacarnatum)
is known under a ''variety of common
names AnnttaE German, Scarlet, and
Italian. This Clover is easily grown,
and should eoine into quite general use.
It is an annual and consequently must
be re-seeded for each crop, which
makes it important ; to frrow seed at
home. Seed may be scfwn from July to
October, but the land should always b
well prepared for it, or. if not, it should
be well shaded, as Under a growth of
cow-pea vine&i or in a corn or cotton
crop, where this seedshouM be sown
when the crop is lkid by. Urown in
this way it may be of great service in
enriching and i holding the land from
washing. Its growth is made in the
cool, wet part of the year, and it is
ready to be made into-nay at a season
when planters are waiting for cotton
to regetate for first working. This is
often a dry time, and the hay ean be
quickly and easily cured. It may often
be best to sow this clover with oats, rye.
or barley, and I cut all for hay in April
or May. - l , , .
This clover will thrive on land in
moderate condition, but. like some oth
er forage plants; will pay best where
given a rich soil. The composition of
erimson clover hay shows it to be a
highly nutritious food. It is so rich
that for any Suse it 'may well bet fed
with some such fodder as straw, mead-
?w hay, or eottou seed hulls. When fed
or produotion of milk, the addition of
