      AberDairy White Clover Seed Blend

      White clover increases the grass and nutrient intake of livestock, particularly during the summer when grass productivity might be slowing down.

      White clover’s strong creeping stem makes it more tolerant of grazing and enables the plant to store energy and protein over winter and into spring. It is also able to fix nitrogen, reducing the requirement and cost of fertiliser applications.

      Mixing white clover seed and grass

      The Germinal white clover blends, bred at Germinal Horizon Aberystwyth, are leading the way in producing higher yields and lasting longer. For example, newer varieties are achieving optimum targets of a 30-35% contribution to total sward dry matter under a range of management systems.

      White clover is best grown as a companion to perennial ryegrass, the variety dependent on the sward’s primary use. Aber HSG mixtures are offered with clover as standard. In addition, clover blends are available to suit a particular farming system or requirement.
