Persian Clover:

Persian clover originates from the Middle East or more specifically in Turkey, Iran and Iraq where it performs remarkably in summer dry areas. Persian Clover can be used as either a special purpose forage crop or used in pasture seed mixes with Italian ryegrasses, cereals or brassicas. Over recent years there has been a great deal of interest in Persian clovers due to its self regenerating and highly nutritive plant properties.

More Lucerne:
More™ Lucerne is that is a ‘carefully selected blend’ of Semi Winter Active and Winter Active Lucernes. Some of the advantages of this are:

  • An extended growing season is obtained against using just one of the activity types.
  • More Dry matter / annum.
  • Capture of all the benefits of both a Winter Active and Semi Winter active Lucerne.

Innoculation Options:

A new granular innoculant called Alosca is now available from Specialty Seeds. Alosca allows legumes such as lucerne to be sown without the need for coating or slurry innoculating. This delivers a saving to the farmer when sowing pure stands of lucerne as sowing rates can be reduced by around 25% (coating of seed usally adds around 30% to the weight of the seed) and the innoculant is in a stable form able to withstand storage and dry sowings and gives fexiblity with storing seed before sowing. Alsoca should be sown with the seed (either mixed with the seed or fertiliser at 10 kg/ha. Not all varieties are available bare, where they are, we recommend Gaucho treating them and sowing with Alosca granular innoculant.For any enquiries please contact us.
