White clover is a widely grown legume in Australia. It is highly persistent in pastures as a result of its growth, branching and rooting down of stolons.
White clovers are distinguished by their leaf size and this also gives some guidance to where they should be used.
Large leaf clovers (Kopu II) are best suited for rotational grazing in dairy and intensive grazing systems in high rainfall and or irrigation areas.
Medium leaf white clovers (Bounty) offer real grazing flexibility as they can tolerate periods of set stocking and harder grazing but also suit rotational grazing.
Small leaf white clovers (Tahora) are better suited to harder grazing and set stocking and can fit into all regions that can support white clover.
