The growth and feed quality of three annual clovers under irrigation in northern Victoria

At Kyabram, pure swards of Trifolium balansae S.A. 45856 and T. resupinatum Maral were sown at 10 kg/ha, and a mixture of T. subterraneum Clare, Woogenellup and Trikkala at 50 kg/ha on 7 and 28 Feb., 21 Mar., 14 Apr. and 20 June. The first 4 sowings were established by irrigation, and all plots were irrigated on an evaporative interval of 60-70 mm until late Dec. Establishment 14 days after sowing was 36% at the first 2 sowing dates and 69% for late Mar. and mid Apr. sowings.
