Haifa White Clover is a medium leaved winter active clover suited to high rainfall and irrigated areas. Haifa white clover is a highly productive winter active variety suited to rotational grazing systems in higher rainfall areas or under irrigation in southern Victoria.
Haifa was selected for increased stolon density, (compared to a large leaved Ladino type), medium leaf size and increased winter activity. Haifa is an older variety that has been largely superseded by later releases, however it is a useful addition to a mix in the higher rainfall zones where winter activity is required.
- Increased winter activity with medium leaf size
- Increased stolon density compared to Ladino types
- Limited summer production compared to Ladino and later releases
- Haifa white clover is best suited sown into a mix with more productive summer active white clover varieties particularly where irrigation is used.
Recommended sowing rates: 3-4kg/ha combined with perennial grasses and legumes.
