Paradana

Balansa Clover
Trifolium michelianum

PARADANA (Trifolium michelianum) is an annual temperate pasture legume that grows during the autumn, winter, and spring seasons.

A mid-maturing hard seeded Annual Clover, PARADANA is well suited to medium to high rainfall environments, demonstrating semi-erect growth when grown in a mixed sward situation, however, will remain prostate if grown as a pure sward or grazed.

PARADANA can provide good herbage production (particularly in spring conditions) however will not regenerate well if cut or grazed in late spring.

PARADANA is highly digestible (14-18% crude protein) and can be used on its own or in a pasture mixture with companion species such as sub clovers, grasses or lucerne, as well as providing the added benefit as a disease break whilst also fixing nitrogen

Paradana Balansa Clover, Naracoorte South Australia

In a Naracoorte, South Australia field of Paradana Balansa Clover. We have experienced a high rainfall season so far and the paddock is boggy and waterlogged. It’s also been affected by snails and slugs around 10 to 20 slugs per metre in some places and causing a lot of damage. Slugs have caused a lot of issues for farmers as they’re having to bait extensively. Some of the early stages of the Balansa crop are showing the damage with leaf margins being chewed off. The baiting process has been heavy and shows the longer growing season with the green bridge keeping the slug numbers high without a typical Australian summer which has caused issues. Will be interested to see the crop recovery over the next 5 to 8 weeks and once the sun comes out it should slow the issues down. Annual Clover
