Burr Medic: Armadillo

ARMADILLO BURR MEDIC provides earlier grazing than most other clovers or medics. This winter annual legume germinates in the fall and grows through the winter with flowering beginning in late January or February. Armadillo burr medic matures and dies in April or early May, so most of the growth comes early, thus minimizing competition with perennial warm season grasses. Armadillo’s greatest attribute is its persistence from season to season. This variety has consistently produced a hard seed content of 90%. If allowed to go to seed, it will reestablish itself naturally for years, provided the pasture is properly managed for legumes. Planting time in areas south of San Antonio is from September through December. Drought tolerance is good with a minimum rainfall requirement of about 16”. Cold tolerance is fair. This is a licensed product.
