AberClaret (Red)

An early flowering diploid red clover and first of a new generation of red clovers, bred at IBERS for increased persistence.

Category:

Red clover is best grown as part of a grass/clover sward, but can also be grown as a monoculture, primarily to provide high yields of protein-rich forage.The development of more grazing tolerant and persistent varieties is creating the potential for red clover in rotational grazing systems, and it also has value as a break crop that improves soil structure and fertility.

• Suitable for a range of systems, yields well under grazing and conservation
• Semi-upright growth habit
• Lower levels of formononetin (oestrogen)

Sowing Rate

3-5kg/ha

Cutting and grazing heights

As the crown is above ground, damage must be avoided to ensure plant survival:

  • Cutting height for all silage cuts should be 7 – 8 cm minimum
  • Optimum grazing height of aftermaths or over winter is 4 – 6 cm
  • In wet weather, avoid heavy machinery and pugging
