SF Yanco

SF Yanco is a mid-seasoning yanninicum sub-clover providing a new and improved replacement for Riverina, Trikkala and Monti. It is well adapted to moderately acidic (pH CaC12 4.5-6.5) soils prone to waterlogging and to loamy and clay soils with good water retention. It is highly resistant to both Race 1 and 2 of clover scorch (Kabatiella caulivora) and that coupled with its outstanding seeding ability, ensures highest autumn-winter forage yields and high total yields. It is SF Yanco is suitable for permanent and semi-permanent pastures. It can be used in cropping rotations, but at least two years of pasture are required between crops. Its upright, vigorous growth makes it suited to hay and silage production, as well as to grazing by cattle or sheep.

Agronomic features:
  • Sub species yanninicum (cream seeded)

    Tolerant of water-logging
    Well suited to flood irrigated hay production

  • High seed yields

    Higher seeding regeneration in years 2 and beyond
    Higher autumn/winter yields from more plants

  • Mid-season flowering

    Produces more feed in medium-high rainfall zone
    Will re-seed in early season finished

  • Strong clover scorch resistance
    Better plant survival and forage yields
  • Good hard seed levels
    Protects against seedling losses with false breaks
