    Jim,
    3 questions:
    Are there minerals or other fertilizer requirements that favor clover seedling survival and thriving?
    Is it possible, with good management, to have perpetual clover in a pasture once established? Or do the methods you describe above work some years better than others, requiring spreading of purchased seed in off years?
    Are there ways in the fescue belt to encourage white clover in with grasses, to spread through stolons and increase in stand density. Do some of these conflict with other clovers or legumes, or tons of overall, quality feed avail per acre?
