Red Clover offers several benefits when grown within a grass ley. Most importantly is its ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen of up to 150 kg N per ha (120 units per acre) annually.
As well as this Red Clover can also increase the protein content of silage by up to 20%, and therefore higher milk yields and liveweight gains can be achieved when compared to grass only silage.
Red Clover leys are also an ideal gateway into organic farming systems, by fixing nitrogen in the subsequent crop and improving soil structures.
