ProtaFix

A quick protein-rich boost for silage

  • Balansa clover, a species known for its high production, especially in wet conditions (autumn/winter) combined with outstanding feed value.
  • Persian clover, especially suitable for dry conditions and known for its ability as the best clover to fix nitrogen.
  • Berseem clover, a productive clover that increases the success of spring sowing.
  • Crimson clover, an all-round crop that thrives on a variety of soils.
  • Silage
  • Grazing

Mix with the grass of your choice

Do you like to make the decisions when it comes to sowing? The ProtaFix clover mixture offers that versatility as it can be mixed with a grass seed mixture of your choice. Do you have a field planted in rotation with maize or other arable crops? Then a combination with an annual mixture is a good choice. Are you going to sow permanent grassland? ProtaFix provides extra nitrogen to get the crop off to a good start and extra forage in the first year. Do you want to continue to benefit from the advantages of clover? For grassland for grazing choose the Quartet white clover mixture and for cutting choose the Duet red and white clover mixture.

 

Improve soil structure and fertility
Clover roots loosen and aerate the soil. This creates better conditions for good soil life which in turn improves soil fertility. If you sow ProtaFix with temporary grass as a catch crop, the following crop will benefit from residual nitrogen.

 

Nitrogen fixed from the air

Clover can fix nitrogen from the air. Sowing ProtaFix means you will require less artificial nitrogen fertiliser for a higher dry matter yield as the crop utilises the nitrogen supplied by ProtaFix.

Clover mixtures

As with grass, each clover variety has its own unique characteristics and growth pattern. As a result, a mixture of clovers provides a higher success rate at establishment and guarantees a longer lifespan. It also combines the different feed value properties of clover.
