Dalsa is a selected derivative of the naturalised strain of Dalkeith. Dalsa is characterised by a very low formononetin and total isoflavone content, high level of hard seededness and very strong seed burial. Dalsa is a ‘showy ’ variety with very good herbage and outstanding seed production, seeds are the largest of all subspecies subterranean cultivars. After the establishment year, Dalsa regenerates better than most other strains of early to midseason maturity subclovers. It has persisted consistently well, equalling Nugarin which it outyields in spring under favourable conditions. Dalsa subclover is a highly productive, persistent, early season sub clover which is suitable for situations requiring a long term self-regenerating pasture or in cropping rotations in areas with rainfall ranging from 325mm to 600mm.
