Description

White Clover grass is a perennial forage legume with a prostrate, stoloniferous growth habit. It is very palatable, nutritious and highly digestible. Trifoliate leaves are smooth and abundant. It has a deep primary taproot in the first season, with secondary roots taking over from season two when the primary tap root dies off. White Clover grass is therefore not as drought tolerant as Lucerne.

Where to use White Clover grass

White Clover is seldom planted in a pure stand. Its main application is to plant in blends with grass species, thereby improving the quality of a pasture. It is mostly produced under irrigation, but requires 800 mm rainfall if produced without irrigation.
