PROTA DUET

Red and White Clover Blend

  • PROTA DUET is a unique mixture of red and white clovers, developed to meet the need for rapid nitrogen fixation to feed new leys
  • Red clovers establish faster than white and are able to make nitrogen available to the ley as the white clover is establishing

Additional benefits:

 

  • Increased yield. Our mixture trials show a yield increase of 5% in the first year after sowing, worth around £100.00 per hectare (£40.00/ acre)
  • The increase continued into the second harvest year, producing additional yields worth £75.00 per hectare (£30.00 /acre)
  • Increases the overall protein content of the sward; red clover's protein content is around 17% compared to grasses of around 12%
  • Because red clover is high in phyto-oestrogen, breeding sheep shoud be kept from grazing for six weeks either side of tupping
  • Red clover is excellent feed for growing and finishing stock

 

Key benefits of including clover

Clover offers remarkable environmental and sustainability benefits as well as a highly productive, nutrient and protein rich forage for livestock.

  • Higher quality pasture under low fertiliser
  • Improves digestibility
  • Fix up to 200kg N/ha/year White clover offers a mid-season high protein sward
  • Improves grass health and resilience against disease Increased intakes resulting in higher milk yields and daily liveweight gain
  • Reduce bought in nitrogen and leave residual nitrogen for a subsequent crop
  • Improved soil health
  • Promotes pollinators and insects

 

Top tip
Always maintain a soil pH of at least 6.0 and P & K indices of 2 for optimal clover content and health.

Expert advice

Red clover is high in phytoestrogen and all breeding sheep should be kept off for six weeks either side of tupping. Store lambs can be fattened very effectively on red clover silage aftermaths. Always maintain a soil pH of at least 6.0 and P & K indices of 2 for optimal clover content and health.
