Facts about FIXatioN

Capable of setting more than 100 units of Nitrogen per acre
Large amount of high-quality biomass increases soil organic matter with a thick mat of organic mulch
Growth of up to 3ft high with stems up to 10ft long suppresses spring weed growth by shading the soil and out-competing weeds for water and nutrients
Later maturation (up to 28 days) reduces likelihood of unwanted reseeding

Relative Feed Values as high as 277 (See complete forage testing analysis)
Crude protein levels range from 22%-28%
5,250 lbs of extremely digestible dry matter in a single cutting

Small seed size reduces cost/ acre (see planting instructions)
Capable of reseeding under proper management
Later maturation allows for multiple cuttings/grazings
Growth pattern accommodates

intensiv grazing regimes

Deep tap root breaks up soil compaction
Increases the water-holding capacity of soil
Bio-massive growth and root system shades soil and prevents erosion and run-off
Capable of 18″ of root growth in just 45 days

Has been shown to be a nutritious  and favoured food source for deer and waterfowl
Attracts beneficial pollinators and insects

Performs well in wet soils (including short periods of flooding)
Survives under snow or in temperatures as low as -14 degrees without snow (Read how FIXatioN has weathered recent harsh winter trials)
Can be either fall sown or frost seeded
Tolerant to drought, heat, low fertility and shade
Thrives in acid-soils where other clovers will not (well suited for soils with pH values ranging between 4.5 to 7.5)

Grows well in mixes with other cover crops – small seed size and hardiness enable it to be successfully broadcast and established with existing forage
Nitrogen collected in plant material is annually released back into the soil for use by grasses and crops
Suitable for no-till planting and in ley farming dryland systems
NOT a host for soybean cyst nematodes
