    Introduce white clover by over seeding grazing pastures with just 2.00 kg per acre to lift the protein content and maintain or increase soil fertility of any medium term ley or permanent grassland. Grass production will also increase due to higher levels of soil fertility without the use of additional nitrogen. The white clover varieties in this seed mixture have been specifically chosen for their performance within a sward used for grazing.

    White clover seeds require very little in the way of seedbed preparation as they germinate and establish relatively easily on firm ground. The seed can be broadcast or very shallow drilled into any short, open sward in early spring or mid- late summer (whilst the grass growth rate is a little slower).

    Harrowing and/or rolling after broadcasting clover will help ensure the seed is in good contact with the soil. It is imperative that the sward is then topped or lightly grazed post emergence until the new seedlings are (at least) semi established. This practise reduces the risk of developing clovers being smothered by the re-growth of existing grass.
