Management and productivity of white clover in a kikuyu grass sward in subtropical Australia


Proceedings of the New Zealand Grassland Association 57: 199-201
Management and productivity of white clover in a kikuyu grass sward in subtropical Australia
A field trial plot-cut study, on heavy clay soil, evaluated the establishment, productivity and persistence of Trifolium repens Haifa sown into a vigorous sward of Pennisetum clandestinum. After T. repens had become dominant, 4 msuperscript 2 plots were randomly allocated to cutting treatments at 5 or 12 cm stubble height in spring at an interval of 14 d or when ready (lower leaves beginning to senesce) in spring and autumn.
