As A Fertilizer

The growing of burr clover exercises a beneficial

influence on the land. Its value for this purpose, since it can be grown

as a catch crop, is probably greater than its value in providing food

for stock. Like all plants that are more or less creeping in their habit

of growth, it shades the soil and keeps it moist, which, in conjunction

with the influence of the roots, puts it in a friable condition. When

the plants grow rankly, it is not easy to bury them properly with the

ordinary plow, but in such instances, if cut up with a disk harrow, the

work is facilitated. The plants quickly die down so as to make plowing

easily possible, but the aim should be to have such decay take place

within the soil rather than above it.
