Taipan is a mid maturing balansa clover with high levels of hard seed allowing for flexibility when seasons are dry. Taipan suits a wide range of soil types and can grow in areas of medium rainfall with excellent waterlogging tolerance. With high dry matter production, Taipan can be grown for quality hay or as part of a perennial pasture system.
Balansa clover is an annual clover that regenerates when given the opportunity to produce seed. A very adaptable species, balansa clover will generally grow where subterranean clover grows as well as some areas where soils can experience water logging or where salinity is a problem.
