  • It has an exceptionally long growing season and 'fixes' nitrogen from the atmosphere for maximum production
  • Exceptionally long growing season
  • Fixes free nitrogen from the atmosphere, up to 150kg N/ha
  • By using a blend of different varieties there is something best suited to whatever the management being applied to the sward
  • Animals prefer to graze a clover / grass sward - this results in higher voluntary intakes and better animal performance
