It's always baffled me as to why my access roads traveled by jeep, tractor, or atv always seem to have a thick growth of some of the prettiest white and red clovers you can find. Certainly the seed is carried there by animals, and vehicle and wind. But my real question is why does it proliferate so well in those areas. Is it from compaction of soil, compaction of seed to soil contact, compaction keeping weeds at bay. Or does clover just like to get the crap beat out of it, and survives so well under those circumstances? I just know, when I walk along and clover is as thick or better in the pathway as is the legitmate clover plot, it makes me wonder. But then I'm easily distracted. Any ideas. BTW, tillage is not the issue.
