Clovers & Pasture Legumes
Pasture legumes are a cornerstone of most pasture systems & many cropping programs. This includes perennial plants such as white, red & strawberry clover, & annual or short-lived species such as sub clovers, aerial-seeded annual clovers, vetches & lucerne. Other species such as lotus, serradella & bisurella are also important in some parts of temperate Australia.
Many temperate species transfer well into the sub-tropics although there are particular species that are developed for the warm-wet north including burgundy bean, cow pea & stylo.
