Taipan is a mid maturing balansa clover with high levels of hard seed allowing for flexibility when seasons are dry. Taipan suits a wide range of soil types and can grow in areas of medium rainfall with excellent waterlogging tolerance. With high dry matter production, Taipan can be grown for quality hay or as part of a perennial pasture system.
Taipan balansa clover is typically sown at 4-6 kg/ha in autumn with pasture mixes that have grasses and other clovers included or can be used with short term forage options such as ryegrasses including Winter Star II and Supercruise in autumn to boost spring growth and quality. Like in autumn, Taipan can also be added at 4-6 kg/ha with spring sown cereals, Italian ryegrasses such as Supercruise/Feast®II/Lush and forage brassicas to produce high quality feed in spring/early summer.
