CLIPPER is a tetraploid variety with a very fast establishment and medium to late heading. The high leaf/stem ratio of CLIPPER provides a highly digestible green material with a high palatability. This characteristic is a guaranty for a high quality fodder.
The high level of sugar ensures a safe conservation of the crop by ensiling and underlines the quality of this variety.
CLIPPER has also a very high production of dry matter, even in the first cut. So, together with the quality aspect the use of CLIPPER is very economic. High quality + high yields = high profit.
The third important characteristic besides quality and yield is a good resistance to diseases. CLIPPER also provides this character and thereby supplies a healthy feed.
