Featured Writeup: Lawn Clover as a Fertilizer

Clover has a unique ability to increase nitrogen levels in the soil through a process called nitrogen fixation. This process involves a symbiotic relationship between clover plants and nitrogen-fixing bacteria called Rhizobia. Here’s how it works:

Rhizobia colonization: Clover seeds contain tiny structures called nodules. When clover seeds germinate and grow, the roots release chemical signals that attract Rhizobia bacteria. These bacteria colonize the roots and form nodules, which are small, round structures on the roots.

Nitrogen fixation: Inside the nodules, a mutually beneficial relationship develops between the clover plants and the Rhizobia bacteria. The bacteria take atmospheric nitrogen, which is abundant but not directly usable by most plants, and convert it into a form that plants can utilize, called ammonia or ammonium. This conversion process is known as nitrogen fixation.

Nitrogen availability: The ammonia produced by the Rhizobia bacteria is then used by the clover plants to support their growth and development. Nitrogen is an essential nutrient required for various plant functions, including the synthesis of proteins, enzymes, and chlorophyll. By fixing nitrogen, clover plants can access a new source of nitrogen that may be lacking in the soil.

Nitrogen release: When the clover plants die or shed leaves, the nitrogen stored in their tissues is released back into the soil. This process, known as mineralization, makes the nitrogen available for other plants in the vicinity. Consequently, the presence of clover can enrich the soil with nitrogen, benefiting surrounding vegetation.

This ability of clover to fix atmospheric nitrogen and improve soil fertility is one of the key reasons why it is often used as a cover crop, green manure, or as part of a crop rotation system in agriculture. It reduces the reliance on synthetic fertilizers, improves soil health, and can enhance the productivity of subsequent crops grown in the same area.
