Moa Persian Clover is a top flowering cool season annual legume which performs well as a companion clover. It is later flowering than other Persian clovers, enabling the plant to produce higher quality vegetative feed longer into the growing season. We recommend sowing Maimai Ryecorn at 100 kg to the hectare and Moa Persian Clover at 4kg to the hectare for sheep grazing, hay or silage production.
To produce a highly digestible and nutritious feed, we recommend Italian Ryegrass and Moa Persian sown in the autumn. Sow Italian Ryegrass at 15kg to the hectare and Moa Persian at 4 kg to the hectare.
