Clare 2 can be grown on a wide range of soil types from ph 5.5 to 8.5 (CaCl2). One of the principle factors that gives Clare 2 its feed productivity is its early vigour enabling it to generate a good body of feed. Other factors that give Clare 2 its edge over other sub-clovers is the variability of flowering and more extensive root system. Clare 2 is a selected derivative of the naturalised strain of Clare. It commences flowering at about the same time as Woogenellup and has a low Oestrogenic potency so is safe for all classes of livestock.
Clare 2 is soft-seeded, having a similar level of hard-seed to Trikkala and is slightly more hard-seeded than Woogenellup. Clare 2 has some tolerance to clover scorch and is resistant to Cercospora leaf spot, leaf rust, powdery mildew and subterranean clover mottle virus.
