|Abstract: ||Production of two rhizomatous clovers, Caucasian clover (Trifolium ambiguum) and zigzag
clover (T. medium), was assessed under a number of fertility regimes.
Caucasian clover annual dry matter production was of 12 t/ha for cv. Treeline on a fertile
lowland soil, 8.5 t/ha for cv. Prairie on a moderately fertile hill country soll and 2.5 t/ha for cv.
Prairie on a low fertility high country soil. For a 30 year old stand of zigzag clover on a moderately
fertile high country soil estimated DM yields ranged from 2 t/ha under low fertiliser applications
to 10 t/ha under high fertiliser rates. The stand gave a 3.2 t DM/ha response to the addition of 50
kg/ha sulphur alone. Both clovers are very persistent and appear to remain productive for several
years in the absence of fertiliser applications.|
