Campeda

Subterranean Clover (Trifolium subterraneun)

  • 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
    • 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

    Key Benefits

    • 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.

    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...
