Annual Clover

Annual clovers are commonly used in South Africa and predominantly in the winter rainfall areas. These seasonal species have the ability to produce good quality feed under dry land or semi-irrigated areas where cereals used to be the norm. They are widely adapted to most soil types and being a legumes needs to be inoculated with Rhizobium bacteria. Annual clovers as a pasture can produce benefits in four ways:

Annual clovers are commonly used in South Africa and predominantly in the winter rainfall areas. These seasonal species have the ability to produce good quality feed under dry land or semi-irrigated areas where cereals used to be the norm. They are widely adapted to most soil types and being a legumes needs to be inoculated with Rhizobium bacteria. Annual clovers as a pasture can produce benefits in four ways:

(1) Increased yield

(2) Improved animal performance

(3) Nitrogen fixation

(4) High seed yields

Annual clovers are appropriate for either pasturage or green composting.
