White Clover

Abstract: White clover (Trifolium repens L.) is the world’s most widely grown clover. White clover originated in the Mediterranean region and was subsequently spread throughout Europe by wind, water, birds, and grazing animals. It was cultivated in the Netherlands in the 1600’s and introduced into England in the 1700’s.

Boron in clover and grass mixes

Abstract: University research has shown that seeding clovers into grass stands not only increased forage yields, but more importantly, improved forage quality and animal gains. Boron is a crucial nutrient for clover seedling establishment, growth and persistence in the stand.

Red Clover

Abstract: ed clover is an important seed and forage crop in western Oregon. Lime, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, and boron will increase yields under
some western Oregon soil conditions. The need for nutrients other than sulfur can be estimated using a soil test. Red clover is best adapted to well-drained soils.

Boron effects on red clover seed production and quality

Abstract: Boron (B) is a critical micronutrient for many smallseeded legume crop species, including alfalfa and clovers grown for seed. Under mild to moderate B deficiency, legume growth and development may not be severely affected, but seed yield may be reduced (Mozafar, 1993).

White Clover

Abstract: White clover is one of the most important pasture legumes. It is highly palatable and nutritious forage for all classes of livestock and most wildlife. White clover is commonly planted with orchardgrass, ryegrass, bromegrass, or tall fescue.
