• Demonstrates good persistence
• Outclassed by Losa
Dalkeith belongs to the Trifolium subterraneum ssp. Subterraneum family
and demonstrates a prostrate to semi-erect growth habit. It persists
well on various soil types and has early maturity, requiring a minimum
growing season of four months. It has a high hard seed level, which in
combination with its early maturity, makes it well suited to low rainfall
cropping rotations. Dalkeith is a superior replacement to Daliak and has
taken upwell in the 350 to 600mm rainfall zones. It is susceptible to a
range of diseases, however, most of these occur in higher rainfall
Dalkeith Subterranean Clover Seed
- first developed in Australia, Dalkeith is an excellent cool season
clover for wildlife. Dalkeith can also be used in a mixture (such as
annual rye) as an excellent pasture clover. Dalkeith clover has an
excellent reseed rate (45%) and will reseed better if grazed (after
establishment). This makes for a clover crop that has a strong seed
reserve built up in the soil and thus should produce for many years.
A better variety than Mt. Barker.
NB: This Clover is not for high rainfall areas.
