I am a big fan of joint vetch and it compliments everything we do here on the farm perfectly.When mixed with alyce clover which has identical management requirements it is a powerful tonic. Here is a brief video showing vetch in October and why I like it so
Interesting stuff Rusty. I’m very limited on food plot acreage but I’m gonna have to try the Alyce clover and joint vetch combo in a couple of them. I can always use something that grows that well with the conditions we had this summer.
That is a good looking stand you have there. I plant a fair bit of both aeschynomene and Alyce clover in SC and it does very well provided it can get some moisture early on to get established. While I get a good bit of volunteer growth the following year, it is never thick enough to be a self-sufficient stand. I end up going in during April and either drilling or broadcasting seed just ahead of a rain shower. It does indeed love some phosphorus fertilizer.
