The first Super Clover is here
AberLasting is the first ever successful cross of Caucasian clover and white clover, providing farmers with the benefits of both.
The superior root system of AberLasting clover provides numerous benefits, including the ability to withstand heavy grazing and faster grazing recovery than white clover.
In a drought tolerance experiment, AberLasting maintained leaf water content for one week longer than traditional white clover when completely without water. AberLasting production paddocks have seen tolerance to Clover Root Weevil over second and third years under pressure.
AberLasting has nitrogen fixation comparable with white clover, and natural whiteclover rhizobia are effective at nodulating AberLasting, as seen in the photos fromboth the North and South Island to the right.
AberLasting also has superior cold tolerance, and can withstand overnight temperatures down to –20oC, which will kill off 70% of the most cold tolerant white clover varieties.
AberLasting is suitable for all farm systems and should be sown in a pasture mix at 3–5 kg/ha.
