Description

Crimson clover is one of the most popular cover crops. Given how many farmers plant it and how much it benefits them, a model of crimson clover is a natural choice for our clients who want a display about soil health or sustainability.

Although it might not seem like a pea or a bean, crimson clover is a legume just like those two. That means it’s highly effective at adding nitrogen to the soil. Beyond that, its roots can also pull nitrogen from deep in the soil to higher zones.  That means the next crop can access it more easily.

But crimson clover’s benefits include more than nitrogen fixation.  Its roots can sink surprisingly deep, improving soil structure and reducing erosion as they go. They help the soil retain water better, too.  And those beautiful pink blossoms attract beneficial insects such as bees and pest predators.

A Realistic Replica of Crimson Clover

We made sure to include those distinctive flowers on our lifelike model of crimson clover.  We also included a cutaway view of the soil and root system. Considering how important the root system is for both nitrogen fixation and erosion control, we wanted to be sure to highlight it.

Our model’s details are highly accurate, from the blossoms to the leaves to the roots.  Its engraved label identifies the plant, for those who don’t recognize it.  It also includes a few bullet points of info about how its nitrogen-fixing and soil-securing abilities benefit the soil.
