Sub-clover breeding program delivers more new generation varieties

A $600,000 investment over the past five years by Seed Force with plant breeding institute DAFWA will see the release of another two new generation sub-clovers in 2017 as part of a program to improve the production, seed yield, pest and disease resistance of sub-clovers for Australian farmers.

Further new releases will follow over the next four years and all new varieties have been tested extensively in trials across locations in Australia where they are best suited.
