Very High Yields
In both the official German and French trials AMOS has out-yielded other varieties, showing stable and very high yields in green- and dry matter. Tetraploid varieties are more vigorously growing and AMOS is outstanding.
Persistency in the French trials are messured in the 3.rd year of use and here AMOS has scored among the very best showing the high persistency.
High Resistance Against Sclerotinia
Persistency of red clover is very much depending on resistance towards Sclerotinia. Amos has a high resistance.
In a screening of a large number of red clover varieties AMOS has shown lower oestrogen (formononetin) content than most other varities. Phytoestrogens are known to be responsible for reproductive dysfunction.
