It’s usually too warm in Louisiana for clover to grow well during the summer. In addition, I’m not aware of any good herbicide that will keep weeds out of clover and not harm the chicory.
Soybeans do much better in areas with high heat and are more drought tolerant than clover. In addition, they are much easier to manage! Many of my clients in Louisiana plant soybeans during the spring and overseed them with a forage wheat or the Broadside blend during the fall.
