Mammoth Clover is a biennial legume, an excellent fast-growing cover crop that may be planted almost any time of the year. Mammoth Red can grow up to 3 feet in height at maturity, breaks up clay soils and adds as much as 200 pounds of nitrogen per acre. Mammoth will grow on inferior soils and requires less moisture than medium red clover, is more vigorous and tolerant of acid soils than other clovers. A clover that is most productive on heavier soils with adequate moisture, usually planted to enrich the soil with nitrogen. An excellent choice for frost seeding into established plots to improve soil conditions.
