Description

THE FIRST VARIETY WITH RED LEGGED EARTH MITE RESISTANCE

Bindoon subterranean clover is a highly productive, early to mid-season variety which is an ideal replacement for Seaton Park and York. Bindoon is suited to well-drained, moderately acidic (pHCa 4.5-6.5) soils in the temperate Australian rainfall zones of 425-625mm. Bindoon grows best on a range of soil types from sandy soils to heavy loam soils.

Bindoon is a major break-through in subterranean clover plant breeding as it has been developed with a new trait in sub-clover varieties; improved Red Legged Earth Mite (RLEM) cotyledon resistance.

Bindoon has a distinctive leaf mark consisting of a pale green crescent positioned in the centre and extending to the margins. The leaves have a weak brownish purple anthocyanin flush extending along the midrib under cold and other growth limiting conditions.

  • Ready to graze in 55-85 days
  • Excellent resistance to Red Legged Earth Mite
  • High total dry matter production especially during winter months
  • Sowing rates should be 4-12kg/ha
  • Ideally sown as part of a perennial pasture mix with grasses
  • Although Bindoon has Red Legged Earth Mite resistance, it is important to monitor the pasture for pest pressure to maximise establishment
  • Minimum 425mm rainfall per annum unless irrigated
