Agwest Bartolo Bladder Clover
Seed Distributors - Science based pasture®

Bladder clover is a species new to cultivation in modern agriculture. It is an alternative to sub clover and medic, being more widely adapted, having higher dry matter production and a prolific seeder for pasture persistence. Bladder clover can be grown on a range of soil types from ph 5 to 8.5 and to a wide range of textures. Quantity and quality of forage produced is generally equivalent or better than other current pasture options. Herbicide tolerance in the field has been assessed with Bartolosensitive to Bromoxynil, Spinnaker and Raptor. Broadstrike appears reasonably safe and Tigrex may offer an intermediate weed control option. Bartolo is less affected by redlegged earth mite than sub-clover or medics. Bartolo Bladder Clover was developed by the Department of Agriculture and Food WA. Commercially available for the 2009 season.
