MANAGEMENT TIPS

Sowing Rates:

15-25kg alone
5-15kg in mixes

Inoculation:

Group C.

The introduction of strain WSM1325 will give existing clovers a significant increase in dry matter production.

Fertiliser

Soil test should be taken on the paddock prior to planting and adjustment made accordingly.

Sow with phosphorous and potassium based fertiliser, further applications can be applied moisture allowing.

Grazing:

Light grazing should start within 6 weeks of emergence to reduce weed competition. Graze rotationally until increasing dry matter production can sustain higher stocking rates. Graze short at commencement of flowering to enable flowers to access sunlight.

Sub-Clover Mixes

Are commonly used in W.A. and give a wider spread of flowering time to suit seasonal variations. Beware of buying seed without some proof of the relative proportions contained in the mixture. This can be done on test result or paddock inspection certificate.

  • Resistant to phytophthora rootrot
  • Water logging tolerant
  • Adapted to waterlogged, acid soils
  • Well suited to phase and permanent pastures and better suited than Trikkala to rotations with occasional cropping
  • Suited to areas with a growing season of 6-7.5 months
  • Good resistance to root rot and scorch
