AberLasting (Caucasian x White)

AberLasting is the first ever successful cross of Caucasian clover and white clover, providing farmers with the benefits of both.

Category:

The superior root system of AberLasting clover provides numerous benefits, including the ability to withstand heavy grazing and faster grazing recovery than white clover. In a drought tolerance experiment, AberLasting maintained leaf water content for one week longer than traditional white clover when completely without water. AberLasting production paddocks have seen tolerance to Clover Root Weevil over second and third years under pressure.

AberLasting has nitrogen fixation comparable with white clover, and natural white clover rhizobia are effective at nodulating AberLasting, from both the North and South Island.

AberLasting also has superior cold tolerance, and can withstand overnight temperatures down to -20oC, which will kill off 70% of the most cold tolerant white clover varieties. AberLasting is suitable for all farm systems and should be sown in a pasture mix at 3-5 kg/ha.

Key features

  • Stoloniferous (surface and underground runners) and rhizomatous (larger and deeper underground stem) root system
  • More drought tolerant than white clover
  • Faster establishment than Caucasian clover • Increased persistence from rhizomatous
    root system

White clover is nearly always grown with a companion grass, and most typically with ryegrass, with the type of ryegrass being dependent upon the primary use of the sward.

Developments in white clover breeding have increased the versatility of its use and the longevity of white clover within swards, with greater nitrogen tolerance being a key feature in more intensive systems. Sustainable systems incorporating white clover range from long term pastures  for continuous sheep grazing (using small-medium leaf white clover varieties such as AberDance) through to medium term pastures for rotational sheep or cattle grazing (modern medium leaf varieties such as AberLasting and AberNormous).
