    Birdsfoot Trefoil does not cause bloat, as do many other commonly used leg Birdsfoot Trefoil Seed - Birdsfoot trefoil is a long lived perennial legume ideally suited for many pastures in central northeast.

    Growing Birdsfoot Trefoil as Cover Crop If you’ve never grown birdsfoot in the location before, you’ll need to treat the seeds with an inoculum so that the roots can fix nitrogen. Purchase an inoculum labeled for birdsfoot trefoil and follow the package instructions, or use treated seeds. You won’t need treated seeds in subsequent years.   Birdsfoot trefoil can be grown in pure stands, but is usually planted in combination with one or more forage grass species to improve overall forage yield potential and support birdsfoot trefoil stems. Its structure is less erect than alfalfa, reaching a height of up to 12 to 20 inches, depending on variety. Prostate stems may be considerably longer.

    Big trefoil is a legume that is ideal for coastal pastures. It is particularly well adapted to the poorly drained, strongly acid soils found here, although it is hard to establish. Seed may be difficult to obtain, but if a legume is included in the pasture mix, big trefoil is a good choice. It generally is seeded in the spring. In some parts of the country, one of the best-kept secrets for good pasture performance may be a forage legume called birdsfoot trefoil. Trefoil, sometimes just called “lotus” because of its Latin name (Lotus corniculatus), is a high quality forage plant that’s adapted to most parts of the United States. It performs well on soils ranging from somewhat poorly drained, acidic soils to dry.

Big trefoil should be planted in the spring as soon as a seedbed can be prepared. In areas where it. Big Trefoil has an incredibly hard seed coat. The proportion of hard seed is usually 80% or more.

Additionally, trefoil requires somewhat warm temperatures for seedling growth (it’s native to Portugal). What this means is the seed coat must be worn down before the plant can germinate and seedlings will grow in the spring and summer.

Forage for Sheep. Spring seeding is less desirable, as the seedling plants of both birdsfoot trefoil and big trefoil grow very slowly and spring weeds offer too much competition.

In the northwestern United States both east and west of the Cascade Mountains the best time for seeding is from April 1 to depending on latitude and seasonal conditions.

Big trefoil (L. pedunculatus Cav.), once thought not winterhardy enough for the state, has recently been found adaptable to the fragipan soils of southern Indiana if properly managed. Birdsfoot trefoil (Figure 1) develops a semi-branching root system, which makes the plant less susceptible to heaving than tap-rooted legumes, such as alfalfa and.

Birdsfoot trefoil has the reputation of being difficult to grow, but a large part of this may be our tendency to think of it only for sites where alfalfa will not succeed.

While trefoil may tolerate poor conditions better than some other forage species, it will not excel on marginal : Kim Cassida. Birdsfoot Trefoil Characteristics. Birdsfoot trefoil is a leafy, fine stemmed, warm season perennial legume. Its upright or spreading stems reach 20 to 40 inches in length and grow from a single crown.

The leaves, borne alternatively along two sides of the stem, are in groups of three, with two more broad leaflets at the base of the leaf branch.

This chapter describes and examines the birdsfoot trefoil. Three perennial trefoil species are used for forage production in the United States.

The most important of the three birdsfoot trefoils—that is, Lotus corniculafus L., is extensively grown for pasture and hay in North central and Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada. Forage crops occupy approximately 7 million acres in Kentucky. They provide most of the feed for beef, dairy, horse, sheep, and wildlife.

In addition, forage crops play a critical role in soil conservation, water quality, and air quality. Many publications are available with detailed information about species and varieties grown in Size: 1MB.

This factor combined with high forage quality, zero bloat potential, excellent grazing tolerance, natural reseeding capability, and the potential for a long stand life, make it an ideal pasture legume.

In addition, birdsfoot trefoil can also be used as a legume companion crop with grasses either for pasture or hay. Under optimum management and growing conditions, chicory produces a high yield of high quality forage (Table 1).

A forage yield of 6–9 tonnes DM per hectare (–t/acre) is common in pure chicory stands for the first two or three years under grazing conditions. One study in New Zealand reported a yield in excess of 15t DM/ha (6t DM/acre).File Size: 1MB.However, trefoil does best within the range of to pH.

This makes it a good alternative legume to alfalfa in acidic soils. Trefoil also tolerates poorly drained soils. According to Dr. Richard Leep, a retired forage agronomist, trefoil is more resistant to many root rot diseases that affect alfalfa.growing period.
