Facts about FIXatioN

Please click on each fact to learn more

  • #1 FIXatioN increases cash crop yields by nourishing the soil and reducing the need for expensive inputs...

    Capable of setting more than 100 units of Nitrogen per acre

    Large amount of high-quality biomass increases soil organic matter with a thick mat of organic mulch

    Growth of up to 3ft high with stems up to 8ft long suppresses spring weed growth by shading the soil and out-competing weeds for water and nutrients

    Later maturation (up to 28 days) reduces likelihood of unwanted reseeding

  • #2 FIXatioN increases livestock mass and quality...

    Relative Feed Values as high as 277
    (See complete forage testing analysis)

    Crude protein levels range from 22%-28%

    5,250 lbs of extremely digestible dry matter in a single cutting

  • #3 FIXatioN is an economical solution...


    Small seed size reduces cost/ acre (see planting instructions)

    Capable of reseeding under proper management

    Later maturation allows for multiple cuttings/grazings

    Growth pattern accommodates intensive grazing regimes

  • #4 FIXatioN protects valuable top soil...


    Deep tap root breaks up soil compaction

    Increases the water-holding capacity of soil

    Bio-massive growth and root system shades soil and prevents erosion and run-off

    18" of root growth in just 45 days

  • #5 FIXatioN compliments entire ecosystem...


    Has been shown to be a nutritious  and favored food source for deer and waterfowl

    Attracts beneficial pollinators and insects

  • #6 FIXatioN is geo-sensitive...

    Performs well in wet soils (including short periods of flooding)

    Survives under snow or in temperatures as low as 5 degrees without snow (Read how FIXatioN has weathered recent harsh winter trials)

    Can be either fall sown or frost seeded

    Tolerant to drought, heat, low fertility and shade

    Thrives in acid-soils where other clovers will not (well suited for soils with pH values ranging between 4.5 to 7.5)

  • #7 FIXatioN complements existing or integrated crop rotation systems...

    Grows well in mixes with other cover crops - small seed size and hardiness enable it to be successfully broadcast and established with existing forage.

    Nitrogen collected in plant material is annually released back into the soil for use by grasses and crops.

    Suitable for no-till planting and in ley farming dryland systems

    NOT a host for soybean cyst nematodes
