Durana Clover Seed

Type: Cool season perennial legume

Adaptation: From Eastern Texas and Oklahoma across the South to the Atlantic coast and north along a line from Macon, GA to Dallas, TX. Durana persists well under grazing.

Uses: Durana is highly persistent under grazing and is best used to enrich existing, unimproved cool or warm season grass pasture, especially if ridding a pasture of toxic fescue is not an option. Excellent for grazing fall through early summer. Durana increases the attractiveness and nutritional value of wildlife food plots, alone or in a mixture.

Benefits: Research and ranch experiences repeatedly demonstrate the superior feed value of a white clover-grass mixture compared to grass alone. Improvements in conception rates, milk production, calf weaning weights, daily gains and animal health can be realized. Durana-grass mixtures may also be used for high-quality hay or silage. Durana also captures atmosheric nitrogen - 50 to 125 lbs. per acre per year.

Nutrition: 18 to 28% crude protein and total digestable nutrients(TDN) ranging from 65 to 85%. Highest values will be obtained with a vegetative to 10% bloom harvest. Maturity of the crop at harvest will determine individual results.

  • Rate: 3 lbs./acre drilled or broadcast into established pastures; 5 lbs./acre for a pure stand.
  • Date: September - November in southern U.S. Frost seeded-February and March. Spring seeded in late March or April.
  • Method: Graze or clip pasture close prior to seeding.
  • Depth: 1/4 inch maximum; many stand failures result from seed planted too deep.
  • Fertilizer: Liming to a pH of 6.0 and providing adequate levels of potassium and phosphorus are necessary to ensure a productive clover stand. Soil testing is highly recommended; see your local county extension office for details.

Management: Durana seed is pelletized with a coating of lime and selected Rhizobia strains for optimal nitrogen fixation and once established and nodulated will not require the adition of nitrogen. Clip or harvest surplus forage in understocked pastures. Under continuous grazing, keeping the grass height at 2 to 6 inches will help maintain the clover and control the grass and weeds.

Special Considerations: Bloat can be a problem for animals on pastures with a large proportion (>35%) of white clover. Bloat-preventative supplement materials are recommended.

Service and product March 23, 2016
Reviewer: Brent from Ladoga, IN United States  
I was very pleased with your service and the Durana clover seed I purchased through Seed Ranch. Your business was the only one I could find anywhere that had Durana in stock. ALL others said they were out of it for the season. The only problem I have experienced is not Seed Ranch's fault. The USPS has been TERRIBLE at keeping package tracking updated! My first order showed up at my house within the 7 day time period but the USPS tracking site still said my package was in Tampa! Now I'm waiting on my second order and, once again, site says it's in Tampa. It's showed that for days and this is Wednesday! So I may very well have it tomorrow or the next day. Who knows!!  Thanks to Seed Ranch for having this, hard to get, seed!!

Clover Seed December 18, 2013
Reviewer: Julia from locust grove, GA United States  
I bought some 20 lbs. of white clover seed, it arrived fast, and free shipping made it to be at a great price. I haven't planted it yet, so can't comment on the quality, but don't foresee any problems. Thank you!
