SF Blackhawk is a new hard-seeded arrowleaf clover with improved forage yield production. It has been selected for improved resistance to pythium and bean yellow mosaic virus. It produces forage well into late spring, which can be used as deferred grazing into summer.
To enable maximum regeneration, rest the paddock during flowering and seed production, then return stock for grazing.
Seed can pass through animals and still regenerate. SF Blackhawk has performed well in trials in Australia at Tenterfield and Shepparton. It should be planted in early autumn and will handle acid to neutral soils. It is not recommended to cut for hay in the first year
