ANATOMY OF A FIXATION PLANT

Attractive Flower

FIXatioN is a fantastic pollinator attractant. One plant can have up to 323 flowers!
Bio-massive Forage Growth!

We have counted as many as 18 tillers on one plant and 186 branches off of those tillers! Stems can grow up to 10ft long and support up to 3ft of growth.
Rosette Growth Pattern

FIXatioN's unique rosette growth pattern allows it to persist under intense grazing regimes. Don't be fooled by its low early fall growth; come spring, FIXatioN is bound to impress.
Soil Building

The nitrogen collected in the plant is released annually back into the soil through root nodules. FIXatioN can produce over 200 pounds of N/acre. Just think of the return!
Aeration and Infiltration

Fixation has a long taproot which allows it to dig deep into the soil profile, break up soil compaction and improve nutrient and water infiltration. Fixation's root system is capable of 18" of growth in just 45 days!

BALANSA CLOVER

Balansa seed is small and economical. Although it may be more expensive per pound compared to other annual clovers, it is cheaper on a per acre basis. We recommend 5-8 lbs as a mono-culture or 3-5 lbs/acre in a mix.

CRIMSON CLOVER

A much larger clover seed, crimson clover will be seeded as a mono-culture 15-18 lbs/acre drilled, or 25-30 lbs/ acre broadcast. In a mix, 10-12 lbs/acre drilled 15-20 lbs/ acre broadcast.

WHITE CLOVER

We recommend no more than 5-8 lbs as a mono-culture or 3-5 lbs/acre in a mix. A smaller seeding rate may be necessary due to white clover's tendency to sequester water and nutrients from surrounding plants.

BERSEEM CLOVER

Berseem clover has a medium sized seed and should be seeded as a mono-culture at 8-10 lbs/acre drilled, 25 lbs/acre broadcast. In mixes 8-10 lbs/acre drilled and 12-16 lbs broadcast. These rates will vary depending on what is included in the mix.

OUR COATED SEED

Comparison of coated and non-coated FIXatioN seed.

Balansa clover requires inoculation with a specific strain of rhizobia which helps the plants fix nitrogen in the soil. This inoculant is contained in the coating of FIXatioN.

  • If the coating is not orange,
    it's not FIXatioN
  • FIXatioN's coating makes the seed heavier and larger, creating an easier planting process.
  • Organic coating is available upon request
