Haifa

White Clover
Trifolium repens

HAIFA is a large leaved, perennial legume that provides good levels of autumn and winter forage production.

HAIFA was selected for increased stolon density, (compared to a large leaved Ladino type). The variety demonstrates good seedling vigour with an erect growth habit and is tolerant to hot conditions.

HAIFA can provide large quantities of high-quality feed and can be grown well in combination with various temperate and sub-tropical grasses assisting in providing a balanced diet to animals. It will also provide excellent levels of soil nitrogen along with an effective disease break.
