Red Clover



2019-05-18 - Central Kentucky - Photo by Pen.
Wikipedia has this to say about Red Clover (Trifolium_pratense): "It is widely grown as a fodder crop, valued for its nitrogen fixation, which increases soil fertility. For these reasons, it is used as a green manure crop. Several cultivar groups have been selected for agricultural use, mostly derived from T. pratense var. sativum. It has become naturalised in many temperate areas, including the Americas and Australasia as an escape from cultivation.

Due to its beauty, it is used as an ornamental plant.

Red clover's flowers and leaves are edible, and can be added as garnishes to any dish. They can be ground into a flour."

Quarles calls for quick ratification of USMCA

By Sean Southard

Frankfort, KY - Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles hailed the announcement that Japan will remove remaining restrictions to U.S. beef exports, saying the action is a significant development for Kentucky farmers.

"Kentucky is the leading beef state east of the Mississippi River, so Japan's action will boost our beef cattle producers and create ripple effects throughout the Commonwealth's economy," Commissioner Quarles said. "The U.S. Meat Export Federation says open access to this market could mean an increase in domestic beef sales of 7 to 10 percent, and USDA says this expanded access could increase U.S. beef and beef product exports to Japan by up to $200 million annually. I applaud United States Department of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and his team for continuing to fight for America's farmers."
