Subterranean Sub Clover is a self-regenerating annual clover suited to moderately acid to neutral soils. A widely used pasture legume in southern Australia, Subterranean Sub Clover grows predominately through autumn, winter and spring in low-medium, winter rainfall dominant areas. Where spring rainfall is variable (and there is a strong chance of autumn rain) mixing shorter season clovers with later maturing clovers can ensure greater persistence.
The small, white and pink flowers appear in late winter to spring and produce globular burrs that are usually buried in the soil.
KEY BENEFITS OF SUB CLOVER
- Perennial Clover
- High feed value
- Ideal for moderate stocking rates, long summer grazing rotations & making hay
- Good drought tolerance
- Late spring and summer growth
THE FIRST VARIETY WITH RED LEGGED EARTH MITE RESISTANCE.
Bindoon sub clover maturity is similar to that of Seaton Park and will suit all of the traditional areas where sub clover is utilised. High seed yield increases regeneration and persistence. Superstrike® coated seed recommended.
Leura displays a very prostrate growth habit and produces a low, dense sward. Although relatively soft seeded, it sets sufficient seed to ensure the reliable regeneration of plant populations.
GOSSE SUB CLOVER
Gosse demonstrates a prostrate to semi erect growth habit and is particularly well suited to moderate to heavy soils and is able to tolerate short periods of waterlogging. It has mid season maturity which makes Gosse suitable for medium to high rainfall zones.
It is suited to regions with a 7 month growth period. It was selected for improved seedling vigour, increased hard seed, disease resistance, and winter and spring herbage production.
The superior hard seed levels of Gosse makes it well suited to either permanent pasture or medium term cropping rotations. Gosse will provide the benefits of soil nitrogen along with an effective disease break.
SEATON PARK SUB CLOVER
Seaton Park is a moderately hard seeded variety that shows very good spring growth. Seaton Park is susceptible to Clover Scorch but shows good tolerance to Phytophera Root Rot. The variety is suited to light to medium soils in areas receiving 400mm-600mm annual rainfall.
