White clover is a valuable resource in the grass field because it increases the quality and digestibility of the feed, gives a better taste, and increases the animals’ daily feed intake. Varieties with small leaves are particularly robust under grazing, while big-leaf varieties are most productive when used for cutting.
If a field is to be used for both cutting and grazing, it is an advantage if the grass mixtures contain both big- and small-leaf varieties.
After establishment, the plants spread with the aid of their stolones, which can take root. This is one of the reasons why the species tolerates grazing very well. As white clover can also survive the winter and is susceptible to few serious diseases, it is a durable plant in the grass field.
