Red clover (Trifolium pratense) is widely grown as a fodder crop, valued for its nitrogen fixation, which increases soil fertility. For these reasons, it is mainly used as a green manure crop. The leaves are trifoliate (with three leaflets), each leaflet 15–30 mm long and 8–15 mm broad, green with a characteristic pale crescent in the outer half of the leaf. Red clover is adapted to a wide range of climatic conditions, soil types, fertility levels, use patterns and management. It is easy to establish, red clover seeds establish vigorously and is a very good clover to fixate nitrogen out of the atmosphere and in to the soil. Red clover is relatively easy to remain free of disease and pests. For this reason, red clover has many uses and is often used as part of a crop rotation program. Although red clover seed is tolerant of a wide range of soil and climatic conditions, it prefers rather mild conditions rather than hot climates and prefers locations where rainfall or irrigation are consistent throughout the year. It can be used for pasture, hay, or silage, and is an excellent soil improvement crop.
