Frost seeding success

Frost seeded some clover this year ( late Feb. ). Tried it in 3 different plots with standing rye in them. It worked well in all of them but this field was the best. It is my north facing plot that really holds the moisture. It started as forage soybean and buckwheat, the beans did terrible ( too much water ) but the buckwheat did very well. Late June mowed, then sprayed, and broadcast brassica mid July, which grew poorly,( again too wet) so followed with rye around labor day which struggled in half the field because of water. Broadcast more rye in late September and finally got good coverage which had it 4-6 in. tall when I frost seeded. After mowing all the plots this June and spraying for brassica this month this clover looked too good to kill, so I skipped the Gly. and sprayed it with Cleth.

Cleth = Clethodim. It's a grass selective herbicide. Pretty reasonably priced too.
