No, it's not. Berseem clover is often mistaken for alfalfa, which brings us to one of it's key benefits. Recent studies have shown that an 80/20 alfalfa/berseem clover mix could increase yield, crude protein, and water soluble carbohydrate levels in hay fields. When overseeded into declining or winterkilled stands of alfalfa, Hay yields were reported to be increased by more than 30%.
Frosty berseem clover is an excellent companion to your alfalfa crop. Its aggressive growth and low hard seed count helps it to establish quickly, filling in bare spots and areas of alfalfa that have winter killed. Frosty dries down just like alfalfa, maintaining its green color and increasing the forage value of the hay or crop.
