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).
Weka has excellent persistence because of its high tolerance to clover root weevil, dry conditions, pugging and hard grazing, and its strong spreading habit.
In trials Weka has shown very high total yield, with good growth in all seasons, particularly through autumn and winter.
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.
