Sub Clover

Sub clovers are the basis of mixed pastures and regenerate very well due to their hard seed content and ability to bury their seed. The main growth period is in autumn to spring. Sub clovers are best sown in early autumn before soil temperatures get too cold. The general rule is the yellow seeded subs (Yanninicum�species) have better tolerance to heavy soils and waterlogging compared to black seeded subs (Subterraneum�species) which prefer more free draining soils. Generally the earlier maturing that the sub clover is, the lower amount of rainfall required.
