Over seeding crimson clover after this rain?

Thread starter #1
I have a food plot that I planted 3 weeks ago in buck forage oats, saluda wheat, and elbon rye and it's coming up pretty good. It says we got 3 inches of rain at the club over the last 2 days. So my question is if I broadcast crimson clover tomorrow will the moisture in the soil be good enough to get the clover going?
I know you would prefer to plant before the rain but I didn't have time.

Broadcast away! You've got lots of time for the clover to germinate, as long as the oats, wheat and rye aren't too thick. You need good seed to soil contact and room to let sunlight down to the clover seed, and another gentle rain, to push the seed into the ground.
