Medics are high protein self-regenerating annual clovers – if established successfully they can regenerate year after year if allowed to set adequate seed. Medics are known for their great drought protection mechanisms which allows this legume to grow in areas of a minimum rainfall of 250mm. Their drought tolerance and persistence allow Medics to be grown over a range of soils and rainfall areas.

Growth patterns are predominately in autumn, winter and spring, with a well managed pasture producing up to 8 tonne per hectare, and up to 200kg/ha of nitrogen annually.

Key benefits

  • High protein forage
  • Capable of regenerating each each without reseeding
