Turf lawns are estimated to cover roughly 2% of the continental United States (Milesi et al., 2005), mostly in highly urban areas. Although management of lawns varies by function and individual manager, it is typically characterized by three primary cultural practices: mowing, fertilizing, and irrigation (Turgeon, 1999). These practices are intended to favor turf species and, when applied in tandem with proper establishment techniques, result in stands of uniform turf. Despite lawns being currently managed as uniform monocultures, they are often host to flowering plants that provide foraging resources for bees and other pollinators. A recent insect survey of park lawns hosting dandelion (Taraxacum officinale F.H. Wigg.) and white clover (Trifolium repens L.) conducted in Lexington, Kentucky (Larson et al., 2014), found 37 associated bee species. These plant species are typically considered weeds in the United States and are sometimes eliminated through the use of broadleaf herbicides. However, lawns managed intentionally for forb abundance and richness would likely have a beneficial impact to local foraging bee communities. Previous research has suggested a strong positive relationship between forb community richness and pollinator community richness that likely extends to lawn communities as well (Ebeling et al., 2008; Potts et al., 2003). Such management goals would necessitate the reduction of other lawn inputs and would further the goal of increased sustainability. Mowing often correlates negatively with plant species richness in lawns (Bertoncini et al., 2012; Garbuzov et al., 2014; Lerman et al., 2018; Shwartz et al., 2013; Smith and Fellowes, 2015), and managing floral lawns could lead to less-intensive mowing regimes. The inclusion of legumes such as white clover has shown to enhance turf nitrogen uptake through nitrogen fixation (McCurdy et al., 2014; Sincik and Acikgoz, 2007), and would potentially reduce fertilizer inputs into lawns.

Analysis of variance results conducted for trial 1 established in 2013 and trial 2 established in 2014. Within each trial, we tested for the effect of grass species (GS), seeding rate (SR), and their interaction on average Kura clover trifoliate leaf and bloom count.

Although weed pressure may have been different between trials, the relatively small footprint of the research area and the randomization process of the plots was likely consistent enough across a given trial not to interfere with seeding rate and grass species treatment analysis within a given trial. Thus, our consideration of each trial separately addresses issues of potential differences in weed pressure between trials adequately. It is possible that weed pressure may have affected Kura clover establishment indirectly through competition with the different turfgrass companion species, but this is impossible to tell from our data. Although Kura establishment was less on the whole in trial 2, the pattern of establishment was somewhat consistent between trials, with the most glaring difference being that Kura clover establishment in hard fescue was not statistically different from the other grass species in trial 2. Although Kura clover establishment does trend higher than in perennial ryegrass and tall fescue, it is likely that a combination of environmental factors interacting with hard fescue in trial 2 modified its competitive interactions with Kura clover. Fine fescues are known to suppress weed growth, (Bertin et al., 2003, 2009), and there is some evidence this suppression relies on environmental conditions (Bertin et al., 2009).

Other studies have found effects of turfgrass species on forb establishment. A recent study involving white clover co-seeded with companion grasses into dormant bermudagrass found clover produced more trifoliate leaves in tall fescue compared with the faster growing varieties such as annual ryegrass (McCurdy et al., 2013). A similar study used three species of turfgrass co-seeded with birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.), and found that kentucky bluegrass and red fescue typically had greater yields of birdsfoot trefoil than perennial ryegrass (Laskey and Wakefield, 1978). These studies generally support the hypothesis that slow-growing grasses are more amenable to the growth of companion forbs, although there is also evidence that tall fescue is partially allelopathic to species in the clover genus (Trifolium) (Springer, 1996). Our results generally support these findings, but have expanded them to include flowering response, suggesting that grass species could be an important consideration for managing turf for high floral densities. Although our study was constrained to Upper Midwest of the United States, the number of studies with similar results span many climatic zones, suggesting this relationship could be applicable in a range of systems.

Recent research (Albrecht et al., 1998, 1999) has developed a promising new system for situations where erosion is a problem under alfalfa-corn rotations. Although soil losses during years of established alfalfa are minimal, losses can exceed allowable limits during the year of alfalfa establishment and following corn silage harvest.

This recently developed system uses kura clover (Trifolium ambiguum) as a living mulch. Living mulches are plants that can be grown with a primary crop without reducing yield. Kura clover is established one or several years prior to corn entering the rotation. In spring, prior to corn planting, the clover is herbicide suppressed enough for the corn to thrive. Best results utilize a herbicide resistant corn variety, band-killing the clover over the corn row, and suppression of the clover between the corn rows. The clover recovers by early autumn to provide ground cover for winter and spring. With adequate suppression, kura clover can be managed as a living mulch in corn with little or no reduction in corn silage or grain yield. Kura clover will recover for full production for pasture, silage or hay the following season.

Balan 60DF (2.5 lbs/acre) was preplant-incorporated the first week of May, 2001. Kura clover was then direct seeded with a Brillion seeder at 8 lbs/acre. Rhizobia specific to kura clover was seed applied just prior to sowing.

Corn growth was well established reaching growth stage V6 by July 6th, 2002 (day 50 after planting). Annual weed control and additional kura clover suppression provided by the June 24th, 2002 treatment were adequate.

Results from this demonstration illustrate the feasibility of intercropping corn with kura clover. Although additional research continues, the merits of the kura clover living mulch system deserve consideration as an erosion protection tool.
