White clover thrives very well on soils with good water capacity. The yield on sandy soils is also very high provided there is sufficient moisture. It is more persistent than red clover, and forms many new shoots from the stolons. Winterhardiness is good. White clover in pastures increases palatability significantly. Digestibility, including flowerheads, is very high. The small leaved varieties are well suited for grazing, whereas the large leaved types can be used for conservation.
