Long term high protein production

Lemmon is an intermediate flowering red clover which is perfectly suitable for multi-cutting systems. It shows a high forage production in spring at the 1st cut, but even higher in successive cuts. Lemmon has shown a perfect persistency and under good management it will still produce in the 3rd year. Having an excellent protein content, it therefor ensures a long term protein production for the farmer.

Lemmon is listed at several official recommended lists: Germany,Austria, France, Belgium and Luxembourg. This proves the outstanding performance of Lemmon under different conditions.
