Red Clover Farming Note

With nitrogen fertiliser unlikely to get any cheaper, soya predicted to increase in price in the medium to long term and land now more readily available, it is worth considering growing a higher protein forage on-farm. One of the more reliable and higher yielding protein forages is red clover.

This Farming Note covers:

  • The benefits and drawbacks of growing red clover
  • How to establish a successful crop
  • Fertiliser application rates
  • Silaging and grazing

Issued January 2009.
