Abstract/Contents:"Historically, lawn seed included clovers and other legumes which provided nitrogen to the associated turfgrass; however, increased reliance on herbicides and altered aesthetic preferences have resulted in an emphasis on uniform, green turf monostands. A return to clover inclusion has the potential to increase the sustainability of low-input lawns and turf systems by providing pollinator forage, enhancing or extending green cover and competitiveness, reducing additional nitrogen requirements, and providing visual appeal. A majority of the research on clover inclusion in turf has focused on white clover (Trifolium repens) in warm-season turf. Alternative clover options for use in cool-season turf have not been as widely tested. This ongoing study (seeded June 2019) is focused on evaluating fertilized (9.76 g N m-2 yr-1) and unfertilized 'Diva' Kentucky bluegrass grown as a monoculture or in mixtures with individual clover species. Clover species include white clover, rose clover (T. hirtum), crimson clover (T. incarnatum), and strawberry clover (T. fragiferum) seeded at 65 PLS m-2. All clovers established well, though crimson clover struggled to recover from the initial mowing (10 cm) after reaching foliage height >30 cm during establishment."
