Prostrate high feed value clover

Kyambro Persian Clover is a self-regenerating annual legume which can produce excellent forage and hay and is suited to the 500mm plus rainfall zones.

Regrowth after grazing is excellent and it has as high a nutritive value as pasture or hay.

Kyambro Persian Clover is a prostrate to semi upright winter annual type and through the winter the plants form a low rosette and in spring the stems develop rapidly.

Kyambro Persian Clover can be grown on a wide range of soil types and has some tolerance to water logging.

Hard seeded Kyambro Persian Clover is well suited to rotational grazing systems sown with other annual legumes and ryegrass. Kyambro Persian Clover produces very highquality forage and earlier trials conducted in Victoria showed the crude protein levels equal to Lucerne. The growth rates from weaner sheep fed on Kyambro Persian Clover hay was 160 grams/day compared to pasture hay at 50 grams/day and Lucerne at 90 grams/day. Kyambro Persian Clover generally has higher dry matter digestibility than other legumes as the above results show.
