"In our (first year) trials, this triple mix resulted in over 3,000 pounds per acre of cowpea production by Thanksgiving; over 5,000 pounds per acre of oats by April, better than 3,500 pounds per acre of arrowleaf clover in April – with even higher yields possible in May," said Dr. Ray Smith, Experiment station legume breeder.

Recent research shows Apache, a new arrowleaf clover resistant to bean yellow mosaic virus, can provide cattle average daily gains of nearly three pounds per day under moderate stocking rates.
These gains were accomplished without the use of nitrogen fertilizer with a stocking rate of two animal units per acre during a three-month period from March through May, noted Monte Rouquette, the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station scientist who conducted the grazing study.
For the study, one animal unit was defined as 1,000 pounds of animal. Suckling steers and heifers were used for the study.
At lower stocking rates of 1.2 animal units per acre, average daily gains topped 3.5 pounds. At the high stocking rate of 2.8 animal units per acre, average daily gains dropped to about 1.75 pounds per acre.
Cattle on the study received no extra protein or supplements, only the standard free-choice mineral supplement, noted Ray Smith, clover and legume breeder with the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, and developer of Apache.
Released in 2002, Apache promises to make arrowleaf clover a viable part of forage production in East Texas and other southern states.
As early as the 1960s, it was common practice to mix arrowleaf seed with crimson clover seed and grow it widely throughout many southern states, from East Texas to Georgia. By mixing the early-maturing crimson clover and late-maturing arrowleaf, ranchers and farmers could have forage from February through early June. Multiple disease problems, including plant viruses and fungal rot, effectively put a stop to this practice a decade ago. Of the diseases, Bean Yellow Mosaic Virus (BYMV) was one of the most prevalent and damaging problems.
BYMV didn't affect crimson clover, but it killed arrowleaf clover, stunted it, or caused it to mature early.
