Clovers are categorized as many different species which all offer different traits, grow in different environments and have different degrees of maturity. Clovers are either true annual types that require the setting of seed every year to remain part of the pasture sward, or true perennial types that grow from stolons to maintain persistence. Clovers are a valuable part of any pasture system as they provide fixed nitrogen to the pasture sward which is needed to drive growth of grass species. Clovers also are an excellent source of protein for the grazing animal to drive higher liveweight gains and milk production.
Tolerates hard grazing and it suitable for high quality hay.
High dry matter production with excellent seed set for increased persistence.
Exceptionally high yielding white clover with large leaf size and year-round production.
Improved persistence due to high stolon density Excellent dry matter yields Suited to a wide range of farming systems Outstanding seasonal production
Balansa clover that is tolerant of moderate soil salinity and offers high dry matter yields
Sulla is an exciting new biennial forage legume suited to neutral to alkaline soils. Sulla is ideal for short pasture rotations in both mixed farming and livestock production systems. Sulla has a high yield potential and is highly palatable, with excellent forage and fodder qualities leading to outstanding animal performance. Sulla is non bloating and has qualities which may reduce worm burdens. It also has the potential to fix high levels of nitrogen.
Lucerne (Medicago sativa.) is a perennial legume and a valuable crop worldwide, often being referred to as the ‘King of Fodders’. It has this reputation because of its high nutritional quality, high yield, persistence under dry conditions, ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen and flexibility of being a dual purpose crop for both grazing and hay, or for specialty hay and silage crops. It is estimated to be adapted to over 30 million hectares in Australia, but the area currently sown is approximately 3.2 million hectares.
The ultimate choice for grazing tolerant lucerne. Stamina GT5 is a high performing lucerne variety that will produce quality hay and grazing opportunities for seven to ten years. It is a true grazing tolerant lucerne which has been trialled over man...
Stamina GT6 combines useful winter growth, great persistence and the ability to tolerate set stocking of sheep (though not recommended for lamb finishing). It provides excellent yield and quality during warmer growing months.
Grazing tolerance and winter activity - the ultimate comination. Torrens GT8 is the first grazing tolerant highly winter active lucerne to be released to the Australian market.
