Weka

White Clover

  • Medium leaved white clover suited to all grazing systems

  • Good growth in all seasons, particularly through autumn and winter

  • High stolon growing point density
  • High tolerance to clover root weevil

    Weka is a medium-large leaved high yielding white clover suited to all grazing systems. It has a high stolon density, a strong spreading habit, and excellent tolerance to clover root weevil (CRW).

     

    Persistence:

    Weka has excellent persistence because of its high tolerance to clover root weevil, dry conditions, pugging and hard grazing, and its strong spreading habit.

     

    Performance:

    In trials Weka has shown very high total yield, with good growth in all seasons, particularly through autumn and winter.

     

    Variety Management/Agronomy:

    White clover is generally sown as a component of a pasture mix with grasses. For sowing a pure stand multiply sowing rates by 2 - 3 times. White clover is tolerant of, and will persist under a wide range of management systems and has high feed value. Its ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen makes a substantial contribution to the growth of companion grasses. White clover will grow over a wide range of soil and fertility conditions although a pH of 5.4 or higher with reasonable phosphorus levels is required for optimal results. It has poor tolerance of drought conditions and is best suited to medium-high rainfall or irrigation, where it will respond well to spring and summer moisture.
