Q Medium Red Clover

Q Medium Red Clover

A weed-crushing combination of 2,4-D herbicide tolerance and early maturity for weed-free pastures.

Q Medium Red Clover

Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) is an important forage legume worldwide, second only to alfalfa, but establishment of red clover can be challenging due to competition from broad-leaf weeds.

Q Medium Red Clover is a high yielding, short-lived perennial legume developed using traditional breeding methods (non-GMO) to provide tolerance to the broad spectrum herbicide 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid

It features excellent biomass production throughout the year and its earlier spring growth means weeds have less time to get established.

This results in a higher quality forage, while reducing your herbicide costs.

Forage Quality Ability to improve forage quality by suppressing weeds and providing highly nutritious forage  
Nutrient Recycling Ability to store excess nutrients for use in subsequent cash crops  
Quick Growth Ability to increase soil organic matter by accumulating biomass in a short period of time  
Weed Suppression Ability to suppress weeds by shading soil and releasing allelopathic chemicals  
Nitrogen Fixation Ability to fix nitrogen into your soil for your subsequent cash crops to utilize as fertilizer for growth and energy  
Beneficial Insectary Ability to attract beneficial insects and reduce your reliance on costly insecticides  
Soil Compaction Ability to increase nutrient uptake and root development by breaking up dense and compacted soil  
Erosion Control Ability to hold soil in place to capture and retain moisture from rainfall and prevent topsoil erosion  
Water Management Ability to increase field productivity by improving the drainage of wet soils  
Heat Ability to tolerate heat stress caused by warm temperatures and/or limited water availability  
Drought Ability to tolerate periods of limited water availability  
Sub-Freezing Ability to tolerate freezing temperatures for an extended period of time  
Shade Ability to tolerate low light conditions caused by plant competition  
Flood Ability to tolerate standing water or flooded areas for a limited period of time
