Sow directly into a prepared seedbed or directly into an established grass. Persists more in competition with grass when grazed or mowed and irrigated. It is more difficult to establish into a grass sod than a prepared seedbed due to competition from the grass for light and moisture. A high proportion of hard seed, 30-40%. Inoculate to reduce the hard seed since these may germinate over time following abrasion by fluctuating soil conditions after sowing.
As a pasture plant, white clover yields are greatest in mild humid climates, such as New Zealand, the Pacific Northwest, the eastern half of the U.S., northern Europe, and along river valleys and in irrigated pastures of the intermountain region. White clover, a long lived stononiferous perennial, is bet adapted to well drained silt loam and clay soils with a pH range from 6.0 to 7.0 in humid and irrigated areas. With adequate soil moisture and fertility, it can be grown on sandy soils. It is not tolerant of saline or highly alkaline soils. Requires 18” of annual precipitation. Semi-drought tolerant, will not persist in long-dry summers in maritime climates of the west central and south coast without irrigation.
The plant is shallow rooted, seldom goes deeper than 2 feet. White clover ranges from a perennial plant in the temperate zones to a winter annual in subtropical areas. Proper management of white clover grass pastures includes grazing or clipping to prevent excessive growth and competition from the grasses. The larger white clover require rotational or controlled continuous grazing. Over consumption of white clover by ruminants may result in either bloat or reproductive problems. For pastures, it is almost always seeded with grass. It has been seeded alone for swine and poultry pastures.
