Sowing & Establishment
Bindoon sub clover should be sown at 4-6 kg/ha in
pasture mixes and should be Prillcote® or Superstrike treated to ensure successful establishment. When sowing
a specialist Bindoon sub clover stand for hay or grazing,
a sowing rate of 8-12 kg/ha should be used. Bindoon sub clover is compatible with most perennial pasture grasses
and performs well in a mixture with cocksfoot or tall
fescue. After sowing, there should be only light grazing
or none at all until seedlings are firmly established and
cannot be pulled out or trampled by stock. This is usually
about six weeks after germination.
During its early stages of development, Bindoon sub
clover should not be heavily grazed, however once
mature, the stocking rates can be increased. As with all
sub clovers, grazing up to flowering will improve seed set.
Once flowering begins, stocking rates should be reduced
to allow for maximum seed production.
