ALICE is a large leaved variety, especially selected for its high yields and improved grazing performance in relation to its leaf size.
ALICE has an aggressive growth habit which gives the variety a high competiton ability to grasses resulting in high annual dry matter yields and outyielding most other clover varieties in its category.
In general, the start of the spring growth of white clover is very slow. In grass clover swards the clover content therefore is usually unsatisfactory due to the lack of competition with grasses. ALICE however, has a very high spring growth and therefore the variety is capable to give exceptional yields in the first spring cut.
ALICE has increased stolon density, giving it excellent persistency under cutting or rotational grazing management and a good level of persistency under continuous grazing. ALICE shows a good level of winter hardiness
ALICE combines a very high level of resistance to clover rot (Sclerotinia) and slug damage.
Apart from its good performance on intensive farms, ALICE is also the number one prefered variety on Organic farms. On this type of farms clover forms a major element on grassland and due to the excellent competition ability, persistency, high yields and resistance to slug damage, ALICE is the most used variety.
