White Clover can be planted between row plantings or as a solid seeded cover both in the spring and fall. White Clover does not grow well in highly alkaline soils. It has shallow roots, meaning that it will not /5(2).

    Clover can be purchased pre-inoculated or inoculant can be purchased separately and applied by hand. If you apply the inoculant, follow the directions carefully to ensure the seed is properly coated.

In mixed grass-clover lawns, clover will reseed itself adequately to maintain a consistent presence. The developing ovules of red clover (Trifolium pratense) in Wales are attacked by the larvae of Apion tnfolii, L. (aestivum, Germ.), A. apricans, Hbst., and A.

assimile, Kby. An account is given of the bionomics of A. trifolii, which is typical of the three [cf.

FACT SHEET Fact sheet WHAT HAPPENS TO MY CLOVER.

You see notches on the clover but the real problem is underground. Understanding Clover Root Weevil • Prefer medium to high rainfall areas.

• Prefer white clover but will feed on leaves of other clovers. • Larvae feed on clover stolons, roots and nodules so. The most obvious sign of CRW is the distinctive notching on clover leaves caused by adult feeding.

If notching is observed, further evidence of CRW can be found by digging up some clover plants to look for larvae in the top 5cm of soil near clover roots. The adult stage of CRW feeds on clover leaves and the larval stages feed on clover roots. Clover does it all. It is a nitrogen-fixing honey plant that breaks up hard soil, suppresses weeds, prevents erosion, provides green manure, and feeds grazing livestock.

Parasitoids (Hymenoptera: Chalcidoidea) of the Cabbage Seedpod Weevil (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) in Georgia, USA. Bionomics of the clover seed weevil, Miccotrogus.The weevils are traditionally controlled by pyrethroid insecticides with limited success, while no established control measure exists within the organic sector.

Pest management in clover seed production would thus be particularly well favored by developing odour-based strategies to control these weevils, which is the end goal of this project.Clover should not be put under stress by other factors, do not overgraze and avoid pugging of soil over winter.

A parasitoid wasp for biological control. In AgResearch introduced a small parasitic wasp (Microctonus aethiopoides) as a biological control agent against clover root weevil.

This wasp was released at numerous locations in both.
