Having trouble with the clover crop, on the Industries map (if it matters?);

First, it is middle of fall, and my field hasn't matured yet. So I used the in-game editor/console to grow a field for me. I know it's cheating - I've tried to do it the right way, but something's not working here.

Second, I can mow this ripe crop, but when I collect it, it's showing as grass. Tried a pickup wagon, and baler. Didn't let it dry yet though.

Short of adding a bunch to my silo (which I don't want to do), how do I do this crop?

I have clover and run Seasons on PV Industries, too. This past season, my clover had to keep growing during the winter (in real life, it's probably like grass in the winter and dormant until spring) and in early spring, I harvested a good crop. Use a grain header and combine to harvest the clover crop and the harvester will also leave a row of grass to pick up or you can let it dry for hay.

So it just might need more time, will keep an eye on it through the winter (1 more day of fall!). I wasn't thinking of using the combine for clover, assumed it was a mow crop. Which it did, just turned into useless grass. Thanks HC.

When I grow and harvest clover it takes some time. It will dump grass cuttings in rows (if you have the harvester set this way) and put clover into the harvesters hopper. Now I do not use seasons so not sure if that is messing with you. But I have had no problem picking up the grass and making bales/silage with what I get from the clover harvests I have done.

Awesome... I was thinking it was just a cover crop over winter for spring fertilizer.... now I have to figure out what we use clover for... This game is definitely interesting fer sure. Will this work for non-seasons?

I don't run any seasons mod myself. For me planting clover is much easier than mowing for grass to make silage. Lol

In the pv animal husbandry mod section there is a sheep pen and goat pen, both take clover as an added food, I'm guessing that it will make wool production more effective. I use seasons and am waiting for it to grow so I can try it out so its interesting to hear that it takes a while to grow.
If you can't find it, it is in the mods section for download which was only put on a few days ago. hope this helps.
