Interseeding FIXation Into Corn

It has been demonstrated that interseeding Fixation clover into V5 corn led to successful stand establishment of the cover crop with no detrimental effects on yield of the corn.  As corn begins senescing in late summer the interseeded Fixation will start to grow before winter. The clover will sprout, but exhibit little foliar growth until the corn begins to dry down or the corn is removed.  In proportion to their growth in the fall and the next spring, cover crops provide a number of benefits such as recycling of nitrogen in the soil, protecting soil from erosion, and adding organic matter.
