Lespedeza is an annual warm season legume from the pea family, similar to clover, that produces tremendous yields of summer forage, is disease resistant, retains more leaves, boosts pasture yields, and reduces the effects of endophyte toxicity, while reducing nitrogen fertilizer needs. Performs better on marginal soils than clovers, legumes, etc. Seeding rate is 12-15 lb./A.
