White clover – is a valuable perennial, undemanding to soil and climatic conditions, fodder plant.
The plants absorb nitrogen from the air, which enriches the soil and provides it to the bell plants growing together.
White clovers last longer in crops than other clovers because they can reproduce not only by seed, but also vegetatively – they have trailing stems that root and thus the plant spreads. With this, they strengthen the turf, which is why they are desirable in pastures intended for grazing.
Use: fodder plant, better suited for pastures. White clover only grows up to 30 centimeters, so it is more suitable for grazing. Suitable for sowing in mixtures with bell plants. Accumulates atmospheric nitrogen.
Cultivation features: grows well in moist and slightly acidic soils. Poorly sown in hilly areas with light soil. May disappear after cold snowless winters, or be overshadowed by aggressively growing plants in the mixture. Alkaline soil promotes the survival of these clovers.
