Turbo produces more feed during autumn and winter than traditional Persian clovers, and will continue well into spring under Australian conditions. Under favourable rainfall or irrigation growth continues into summer providing extended production and grazing. Turbo is a very palatable and nutritious plant making excellent forage for grazing or conservation as hay or silage. Turbo has more leaf and less stem making for better hay. The development and selection program from which Turbo originated concentrated on cold and frost tolerance.
