However, it is not adapted to low fertility sites. Although the effects of berseem clover hay supplementation on the intake and digestibility of corn crop residues do not differ from alfalfa hay, the nutritional value of stockpiled berseem clover decreases rapidly during winter, limiting its value as a standing supplement for corn crop residues in late winter. 0000435646 00000 n It is mixed with grass (ryegrass) or with a winter cereal crop such as oats to make high quality silage. 0000001886 00000 n 0000002510 00000 n 0000030686 00000 n 0000426561 00000 n Clover’s energy, protein and fiber content make it a good feed source for horses. 0000421757 00000 n 0000425550 00000 n Berseem is a fast growing, high quality forage that is mainly cut and fed as green chopped forage. 0000044262 00000 n 0000111901 00000 n Egyptian Berseem Clover is the best legume in this field for the rapid decomposition of its residues and its transformation into nutrients suitable for plant nutrition and soil properties improvement. h���1 01���ʵ0�A�x�'MF[����. 0000008272 00000 n 0000005813 00000 n P roducers looking to refresh pastures for g razing season may find adding berseem clover will increase feed nutritional value and cattle productivity, especially in the southern half of the country. 0000013830 00000 n Berseem clover’s forage grass has very rapid regrowth, gives excellent cutting hay and good for direct grazing as well.
