Rivendel White Clover

USDA organic logo

Trials show that small leaved white clover is most persistent in permanent pastures under a grazing management. Rivendel is a small-leaved very persistent variety. It has short rhizomes and short leaf growth, which makes it suitable for both cattle and sheep farming as it tolerates close grazing and maintains a high proportion of clover in the sward.

In several trails though-out Europe, Rivendel has shown its excellent resistance against strong and cold winter conditions.

Rivendel has a good distribution of DM yields through out the season and years with high rel. yields compared to the standard variety in 3rd. and following years.

Disease Resistance
Rivendel has a good resistance to nematodes and clover rot (Sclerotinia), which also improves the persistence. Sclerotinia average all cuts MILKA VRS mid-leaved 2,5 VRS 2 middle/big-leaved 1,8 Control variety small-leaved 2,8 Rivendel small-leaved 1,5
