Crimson clover provides early spring nitrogen for full season crops in Southern regions. Rapid summer or fall growth in cool season areas make it ideal for weed suppression and green manure purposes. Crimson clover is widely used in the South for roadside cover or as a re-seeding annual clover in pastures and hay ground. It is gaining popularity as a versatile summer annual cover crop in Northern regions.
