SF Tammin

High hard seed levels

SF Tammin is a more persistent and resilient early flowering subterraneum clover (ssp. subterraneum). It was developed for cropping rotations in low-medium rainfall (300-450 mm annual average rainfall) areas with the novel traits of RLEM cotyledon resistance and much higher hardseededness than other cultivars. SF Tammin also has a much slower breakdown of hard seed in the autumn Making it able to handle false breaks.

It will still have 15% hard seed after 3 years, improving its ability to recover in short cropping phase rotations.

Agronomic features:
  • Early flowering

    High forage yields in lower rainfall environments. Provides quick feed in autumn and winter. Will re-seed in early season finishes.

  • High hard seed levels

    Protects against seedling losses with false breaks. Will maintain better persistence and yield over time.

  • Delayed hard seed breakdown

    Less seed lost due to out of season rainfall. Some seed will survive after 3 year cropping phase.
