Kaiwera Pasture Trial

The Kaiwera Pasture Trial Site was established in autumn 2012, with 80 cultivars being tested in 360 plots.  The site is grazed in a fashion typical for the farm, with both sheep and cattle.  We have completed the three year assessment of relative yield (see below), and also persistence.  In 2014 we also took part in research which evaluated the tolerance of different cultivars of white and red clover to clover root weevil.  For copy of full results, click this link.
