CLAYMORE HI-PRO

A HIGH CLOVER VARIANT INCLUDING BOTH RED AND WHITE CLOVER

A blend of intermediate and late Perennial Ryegrasses with Timothy and both Red and White Clover

An adaptable mixture aimed at medium to long term cutting that produces exceptional yields of quality forage

  • Varieties selected for top conservation yield 
  • Good Spring growth with relatively late heading date
  • Good disease resistance and high sugar varieties for reliable fermentation
  • Exceptional performance under intensive management
  • Good hardiness and persistence
  • Also produced excellent results in Oliver Seeds grazing trials, enhanced by top Clover varieties
  • Trials show a yield advantage of up to 1.5 tonnes of DM/ha in the second harvest year compared to Claymore

Sowing Rate 12 to 14 kg/acre

Pack Size 20kg

 

Red Clover mixtures for higher protein and reduced nitrogen input

The advantages of Red Clover are not always realised but in summary, offer three times the yield of a large leaved White Clover.

This yield comes at a cost however, as the species is not as persistent as White Clover and is therefore best used in 2-4 year leys.

A long, penetrating tap root allows Red Clover to withstand drought and be suited to lighter soils.

Balancing Grass and Clover

Clover as a species can be very aggressive when Spring sown, especially Red Clover. This can prevent grass plants establishing as well as they should with a consequent imbalance in the resultant sward.

Our Hi-Pro mixtures contain less Clover seed in the Spring than in the Autumn, therefore, the balance is controlled for you from the start.
