White clovers, distinguished by their leaf size, are highly persistent in pastures throughout Australia as a result of its growth, branching and rooting down of stolons. Leaf size ranges from small, medium and large.Small leaf clovers are generally suited to harder grazing; medium leaf cloves offer grazing flexibility as they can tolerate periods of set stocking and harder grazing but also suit rotational grazing; and large leaf clovers are best suited for rotational grazing in dairy and intensive grazing systems in high rainfall and or irrigation areas.
KEY BENEFITS OF WHITE CLOVER
- Excellent persistent
- Small leaf clovers – suited to harder grazing
- Medium leaf clovers – offer grazing flexibility
- Large leaf clovers – suited to rotational grazing
