Tasman - White clover

Winterhardy white clover

  • Medium leaved white clover.
  • High dry matter yield.
  • Controlled spring growth.
  • Winterhardy type.
  • Pest resistance.
  • Officially listed in: Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Belarus, France.

    Tasman is a medium leaved variety, especially selected for its high persistency and excellent tolerance to winter.


    High dry matter yield

    Tasman has an aggressive growth habit which gives the variety high competition ability to grasses resulting in high annual dry matter yields.


    Controlled spring growth

    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 ability with grasses. Tasman however, has a normal spring growth and therefore the variety is capable to give good clover content in the sward at the first spring cut.


    Winterhardy type

    Tasman has increased stolon density, giving it excellent persistency under intensive grazing management and a good level of persistency in long term used pastures. Tasman shows excellent winter hardiness.


    Pest resistance

    Tasman combines a high level of resistance to clover rot (Sclerotinia) and slug damage.

    White clover

    White clover is a perennial legume which spreads by branching stolons through the sward. It has the ability to produce its own nitrogen through a symbiotic process with rhizobium bacteria in the root nodules. White clover is mainly used in grazing leys for its high nutritive value.
