White Clover

Legume
(Trifolium repens)

White clover is a valuable and versatile legume widely used in the UK. Small varieties are most persistent under grazing whilst the larger varieties are more competitive in the cutting situation. They generally persist well given correct management and colonise swards through creeping stolons. As well as fixing atmospheric nitrogen they contribute to animal performance as a quality source of protein.

Uses

Grazing, silage, hay

Sowing Rate

up to 4kg/acre

Persistence

Perennial

Sowing Period

March to August

Yield Potential

10t DM per ha

Management

Clover content can be controlled through careful management. If clover content is too low grass growth should be controlled through frequent grazing and sympathetic fertiliser application. If the clover becomes too strong intensive grazing and synthetic fertiliser can be used to encourage more grass growth.

Additional Info

In a sward white clover can fix around 150 kg N/ha
