Are you talking about Alice white clover or alike clover?

Alice is a white clover and ladino's are just a large leafed white clover as well.

Select (clethodim) and Butyrac 200 are safe on ALL clovers and alfalfas, except Butyrac cannot be used on sweet clover.

It's too expensive for herbicide manufactures to label all safe species but often there are supplemental labels as is the case with the herbicides in question here.

I ordered some Alice clover today from Welter seed. Thanks Lickcreek! I plan on frost seeding in early March. I cant wait to get started. The people at Welter seemed real nice. I am mixing Alice, Kopu II, and Jumbo ladino. I ordered a little more of the Kopu after speaking with the salesman.I dont know much about it, but thats what he recommended.
Lickcreek, have you any experience with this clover?

HOLLY CRAP! That's impressive!

EDIT:

What soil requirements are required for good growth of these clovers?

Default Outfitter's Choice Spring Blend

Wardy,
We use Kopu II and Jumbo Ladino in Outfitter's Choice Spring Blend. We tested MANY clovers before we landed on these 2. We have several Agronomists we work with that directed us to these clovers. After all the testing and trial results it was a no brainer. These clovers are easy to establish and are very draught resistant. They are high in protein and also produce tons of forage. If you are looking for a good blend containing those 2 clovers and chicory check us out. Our seed is coated and inoculated as well. It is also pretty cheap compared to others on the market. A 1 acre bag of Spring Blend runs around $37.00. PM me if you would like more info.

Default 6.0 to 7.0

mdqc01,
As with most clover you need a PH level between 6.0 and 7.0. If you have a good PH the clovers will perform for you.
