White Clover

White Clover

 

White clover can withstand heavy traffic and supplies a food source for pollinators. As a legume, white clover supplies efficiently Nitrogen for soil. It is often used as soil stabilizer in fruit orchards.

White clover is also an important pasture legume, often grown together with perennial grasses. It can provide up to  20% of the crude protein value to a forage.

Even if white clover makes an excellent forage, it carries a moderate bloat risk. Consequently, white clover should consist maximum 40% of the available forage.
