Chris Herring of Columbus, Miss., is a land manager and cotton farmer. From developing deer to grazing cattle, cover crops are integral to his business model.
FIXatioN Balansa Clover’s ‘wet feet’ has allowed it to survive consistent flooding on Chris Herring’s heavy land. Since September when it was planted to mid-May, it has been flooded 21 times.
The high amount of biomass and nitrogen fixed from the approved variety of balansa clover has reduced weed control and fertilizer costs for Chris Herring’s different enterprises, while improving soil conditions.
The 20-25% crude protein content of FIXatioN Balansa Clover makes it ideal for developing deer on food plots.
