Grasslands Hilltop small-medium leaf white clover was bred to cope with more challenging environments from variable fertility to variable moisture availability or combinations of the both. It has a higher stolon density than Tahora II making it even more robust and persistent. A focus of Hilltop breeding was for competitiveness against invasive grasses such as Browntop to help it survive in the reverted pastures often found in New Zealand.

Grasslands Hilltop small-medium leaf white clover can be established at 4-6 kg/ha following recommended pasture establishment procedures. The use of Superstrike clover seed treatment will improve seedling establishment. It is also ideal for oversowing with Prillcote seed treatment.
Management of Grasslands Hilltop small-medium leaf white clover will depend on the pasture mix it is in. It has been bred to cope with intensive sheep grazing but can persist under a number of situations and stock classes.
