New Zealand White Clover Haifi (Trifolium Repens) - New Zealand bulk white clover is a perennial, highly palatable, often used in pasture mixures west of the Cascade range. As a pasture plant, white clover yields are greatest in mild humid climates when grown from clover seeds. Best adapted to well-drained silt loam and clay soils with a pH range from 6.0 to 7.0 in humid and irrigated areas. With adequate soil moisture and fertility, it can be grown on sandy soils. New Zealand white clover is not tolerant of saline or highly alkaline soils. The plant is shallow-rooted, seldom goes deeper than 2 feet. For pastures, white clover is almost always seeded with grass to prevent bloat and reproductive problems. The flower color is usually white, but may be slightly pinkish.
Inoculated Seed - We now offer New Zealand White clover seed that has been coated with an inoculant for better establishment. NITRO-COAT® rhizobium strains are specifically chosen for each seed type. A key to any successful establishment and early seed development is moisture. NITRO-COAT® is naturally water absorbent and helps attract soil moisture to the seed, getting your stand established quickly. This coating process which Outsidepride utilizes, assures that only the top-performing and crop-specific rhizobia will be applied to ensure your clovers reach maximum nodulation, stand establishment, and yield potential. The weight of the clover seeds will contain approximately 34% coating material that contains the inoculant and water holding material for better establishment and viability of the seed. There is no difference in the seeding rates between the coated and raw seed due to the increased germination and viability of the bulk clover seeds that are coated and inoculated.
Seeding rate 6 to 8 lbs/acre.
