New Zealand White Clover

New Zealand White CloverCover Crop Seed


Product ID: 979

An improved pasture white clover. Previously sold under the name White Dutch Clover.

Once established, white clover can handle foot and tractor traffic better than other clovers. The fibrous root system typically is in the top 8" of soil, although it does have up to a 40" tap root in the first year which dies each fall, leaving a passage for water to percolate through. More heat tolerant than some of the larger clovers, it is a low-growing (to 12") perennial that can be sown into long-season row crops during the season to provide a "living mulch." Sow after first cultivation at 1/4 lb. per 1,000 sq.ft. (10 lb./acre) and rake or cultivate to cover. Also used for green manure, hay, and pasture. Inoculate with #9511 for best performance. Avg. 664,300 seeds/lb.

Shipping Information & Notes

White clover is more tolerant of poor soil conditions, minor flooding, and heat than other clovers. It can be mowed and/or grazed short (2-3") and will recover well. Let it grow 6-8" in the fall to help it overwinter. White clover can produce as much as 200 lb. of nitrogen per acre, but averages 130 lb.

25-lb. and 50-lb. sizes ship via ground transportation. The appropriate "Zone" additional shipping charges will be added at checkout. Please remember to provide a street address.
