AbstractIn an experiment completed at the Americus Plant Material Center, Americus, Georgia, amclo clover, T. vesiculosum, was grown on Pensacola bahiagrass and Coastal bermudagrass sods at 6 fertility levels and crimson clover was grown at one fertility level on the same sods. Data showed that amclo with adequate fertilization would make a contribution to the forage production of Pensacola bahiagrass when stands of the clover were obtained in the fall (with procedures used in this research). Stand failures occurred 50% of the time and further research on obtaining stands of amclo on bahiagrass and bermudagrass sods would appear to be in line. The data in this investigation showed that amclo was not as productive on Coastal bermudagrass sod as was crimson clover. Neither clover was as productive on Coastal as on bahiagrass. While fertilizer application had a positive effect on clover production, it did not necessarily assure high clover production.
