- Annual and dependent on seed for the following years growth
- Very drought tolerant
- Shallow rooted so can’t utilise deeper soil moisture
- Susceptible to red-legged earth mite and lucerne flea damage
- Poorly tolerant of water logging
- A potential weed in cropping systems
- Highly productive in spring but no summer production
- Not suited for spring sowing
- Midseason maturity – 123 days to flowering (AUS)
- Superior winter vigour, higher production and disease tolerance over Woogenellup
- Has a better ability to utilize background rhizobium than all other Sub Clovers
- High hard seed levels (29%)
- High seed yield resulting in excellent regeneration
- Approximately 2 weeks earlier flowering than Goulburn although Campeda can vary flowering to match season
- Alternative for Seaton Park
- Known for its leafiness and forming a dense sward, this variety produces dry matter quickly in the autumn and provides excellent winter vigour and late season productivity.
- The high hard seed levels, increased persistence, production and superior seed yield make Campeda an ideal replacement for Goulburn and Woogenellup.
- The ability of Campeda to better utilize background rhizobia in the soil ensures best possible nitrogen fixation to assist growth and crops following pasture phase.
