Tammin is a more persistent early flowering variety for cropping rotations in low-medium rainfall (300-450 mm annual average rainfall) areas with the novel traits of seedling resistance to redlegged earth mites (RLEM) and much higher hardseededness than other cultivars.
SF Narrikup is a very vigorous mid-late season subterraneum clover (ssp. subterraneum), flowering approximately 126 days from an early May sowing in Perth
SF Rosabrook was developed by the National Annual Pasture Legume Improvement Program (NAPLIP) as a replacement for cv.Denmark with improved cotyledon tolerance to Red-Legged Earth Mite (RLEM).
Rouse is a mid to late flowering variety of the waterlogging-tolerant “white-seeded” yanninicum subspecies of sub clover. It is suited to soils prone to waterlogging in areas with 550-900 mm annual rainfall and where the growing season extends to mid-late November.
SF Rossi is a diploid red clover bred by RAGT in Europe. It has good first year production and improved pest and disease resistance to ensure improved second year yield.
Casper white clover is an early variety with long and large leaflets. It shows strong winter productivity with high disease and pest resistance. Casper white clover has the ability to recover quickly from cutting and grazing, making it ideal for milk and meat production.
SF Quest is a high yielding large leaf and highly stoloniferous white clover with good persistence under grazing. It is well suited to sowing in pasture mixes for beef and dairy grazing where white clover will persist.
'Grasslands Sustain' white clover was bred to break the negative relationship between yield potential and persistence, by combining medium—large leaf size with high stolon growing point density. It is expected to grow and persist well under a range of stock classes and management systems.
Haifa white clover is a highly productive winter active variety suited to rotational grazing systems in higher rainfall areas or under irrigation in Western Australia.
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 Haifa is an older variety that has been largely superseded by later releases, however it is a useful addition to a mix in the higher rainfall zones where winter activity is required.
Balansa clover (Trifolium michelianum) is a hairless, semi-erect annual legume. It is well adapted to most soils on which subterranean clover grows, has a high feed value and is palatable to livestock. This note describes the origin, management, cultivars, Victorian trial work results and fodder conservation of this species.
Shaftal is a soft-seeded, late maturing annual clover that is best suited to hay production. It has a semi-erect growth habit and is adaptable to various soil types, with tolerance to waterlogging and mild soil salinity. Shaftal is very palatable, highly digestible, and is well suited to multiple hay cuts, grazing or silage production.
Neptune Messina is an annual pasture legume for saline and waterlogging prone soils. Best suited to winter-wet saltland areas of southern Australia and is recommended for grazing in combination with other pasture species.
