Grasslands Tahora II small-medium leaf white clover can be established at 4-6 kg/ha, following normal pasture establishment procedures. Because of its characteristics, Grasslands Tahora II is ideal for oversowing. The use of Superstrike clover seed treatment is recommended and this will improve initial establishment.
Management of the pasture will depend mainly on the other species included in the mix with Grasslands Tahora II small-medium leaf white clover. This clover has the ability to persist under many situations, and is ideally suited to set-stocking management.
“Tahora II has been bred to overcome a number of factors which impact on clover production and persistence in the pasture sward, such as intensive grazing, poor fertility, insect pressure, drought and poor competitiveness against other pasture species such as grass.”
