As a legume, Domino white clover obtains nitrogen from the atmosphere and fixes it into the soil for its own use as well as for the grass growing around it. This translates into economic savings for farmers who plant clover to provide the nitrogen their pastures need rather than purchasing and
applying nitrogen-based fertilizers.
In addition to nitrogen fixation, Domino has other economic benefits. Because it has high digestibility and contains more protein, it increases the milk/meat production. This means more production for each dollar spent.
