It is perennial. It has a high nutritional value, which does not decrease with maturation. It is not erected. It has a good natural re growth. It can grow in low drained soils, and low soduim or low phosphurus soils. It tolerates periodic floods. It must be seeded it in march and april. It is used to direct pasture, to be cut, or to as hey. It does not produce meteorism. It can be combined with species such us rye and fescue. Seeding density is 1 to 3 kg/ha for mixtures and 6 to 8 kg/ha pure.
Trifolium Resupinatum. Legume species with very good implantation in early plantings, very competitive in weeds with very good biomass production in early spring.
Tolerant to excess water and salinity. Very tolerant to low temperatures. It has very good root development with high nitrogen fixation, standing out as ancestor in corn crops.
Pure sowing density is 8-10 kg / Ha. For cattle raising purposes, in mixtures with grasses 4-6 kg / Ha.
Red Clover Queni Quelli
It is erected. It is adaptable to heavy soils. But it has phosphorus needs. This is a vigorous and aggressive plant, with advanteges above weeds. Its fodder production is in spring and summer. And it easily recovers itself after being cut. Seeding density: 8-10 kg/ha pure and 3-6 kg/ha mixed.
White Clover El Lucero
It is perennial. It has a creeping growth. It hasa high nutritional value due to its growth way because the animal eats the sheets and the petioles. It is recommended for humid climates and toheavy soils. It can tolerate flooding for short periods of time but it cannot tolerate salt or acidity. It is a spring summer autumm producer. It is very persistant. Seeding density pure: 1.5-2 kg/ha. Mixed: 0.5 kg/ha (commonly mixed with ryegrass and fescue).
White Clover Haifa
It is more erect, more resistant to high temperatures and drouth than el lucero. It is recommendable for light soils with low fertility. It is a summer producer. It produces meteorism. It is used in mixtures with fescue and orchardgrass.
Yellow Sweet Clover Madrid
It is also called yellow smell clover because of the colour of its flowers. It is better than alba. It can resist salty and alcaline soils. It is ussually mixed with agropiro (5-8 kg/ha) or pure (8-12 kg/ha).
White Sweet Clover
It is a rustic plant. Widely used in our country. It can easily grow in low soils, because it can tolerate floodings and salt. It is easy to re seed.during spring and summer it produces a great ammount of fodder. When its stem starts to lignify the fodder quality decrease quickly. It is a toxic plant because of its cumaria content. Its seeding density: 10-15 kg. (pure). Mixed with rye or fescue 3-6 kg/ha.
It is an annual leguminous. It produces in winter, which is good to crops rotation in our stockbreeding systems. It is a fodder plant with a high nutritional value. It gives nitrogen to the soil. It is more resistant than the vicia sativa. It is resistant to low temperatures. It easily adapts itself to different soils, including salines ones. But it does not tolerate flooding. It is a quick growth plant and easy establishment. It is usually seeded in mixtures made of 30 % grasses and 70 % vicia.
