Sowing & Establishment

Grasslands Bounty medium leaf white clover can be established at 4-6 kg/ha following recommended pasture establishment procedures. Bounty medium leaf white clover performs best on moderate free draining soils of medium high fertility. The use of Superstrike clover seed treatment will improve initial establishment.

Grazing Management

Grasslands Bounty medium leaf white clover will provide best results under rotational grazing systems for sheep, cattle and deer.

However, Bounty medium leaf white clover can perform well under set-stocking and oversowing situations. For best performance Bounty medium leaf white clover should be lightly grazed frequently during the establishment phase.
 

Mix Suitability

Bounty medium leaf white clover can be mixed with Grasslands Tahora II small-medium leaf white clover for harsher environments or with Grasslands Legacy or Kopu II large leaf white clovers under rotational grazing systems.
