Anyone using coated clover. Local ag dealer had had a flyer for them. Think there limagrain product.
We sell a lot, works well as you can spin in on with the fert or use a drill that can’t normally handle clover seed. It’s coated with a fertiliser type product that aids germination.

But what is the succes rate when it is spun on with fertiliser rather than drilled?
We used to put a green calf bucket of clover seed in every spreader full of fert over feb mar apr and may and then the cows will tread it in through the season, as it only needs soil contact to grow
Won’t do much this year but all p&k and ph being right should do well next year

I may be wrong, but I thought coated clover seed was invented by one if the big german seed houses to spin their clover out a bit. All it is coated in several layers of clay, that may or may not aid germination. You pay mor per kg, and get less seed
………or it gives a more uniform seed that is easier to calibrate in some drills and alot more accurate to spread if broadcast. If you can handle standard seed fair enough but a lot prefer this product for convenience and its seed treatment.
