Unique cool-season annual legume native to the northeastern Mediterranean region and becoming widely used in North America and other parts of the world. Balansa can be used for grazing, hay, cover cropping, and wildlife feed.

FIXatioN balansa clover is the most cold-tolerant annual clover; it can withstand temperatures down to -14˚F. FIXatioN can tolerate a variety of soil types, tolerating pH levels from 4.5-8.3, can even grow through short periods of standing water and is mildly tolerant to saline soils.

 As an annual clover, FIXatioN also helps with soil drainage and water infiltration due to its deep tap root system. FIX your soil today with FIXatioN balansa clover.

Balansa somewhat resembles white clover, yet has very distinct differences. It has white and pink flowers, hairless serrated leaflets that can grow very large. Its stems are hollow. Select varieties can extend up to 10 feet in length.

Balansa clover is quick to germinate, however the first stage of growth is spent in forming a multi-branched rosette emerging from a single taproot. During this stage balansa is somewhat vulnerable to competition as the branches are close to the ground. Survival can be increased by sowing into a clean weed-free seedbed or by grazing/mowing competing species.

This growth pattern allows balansa to persist under intensive grazing regimes. It will continue to form branches under grazing pressure. As temperatures warm or grazing pressure is reduced the stems will turn upright, forming a multi-branched hollow stem with copious amounts of plant mass up to 3 feet high.  As the plant matures it will continue to grow and produce blossoms that are very attractive to pollinators. Balansa clover is capable of producing large amounts of hard seed and if managed properly can regenerate itself from seed for up to 3 years.
