Seeding without a companion crop, reducing competition from companion crop by grazing and the use of selective herbicides are means of increasing chances of successful establishment of birdsfoot trefoil.

A combination of dalapon and 4(2,4-DB) has shown promise of controlling grasses and many broadleaf weeds without serious injury to the trefoil.
