CHIEFTAIN deserves to be worshipped for outstanding performance particularly under cutting management. In DARD trials, CHIEFTAIN was assessed for production and output when grown with a companion grass.
CHIEFTAIN achieved a higher output in summer and autumn than even the large leaved clovers in the trial to give a total yield of 106% of controls with 37% clover content in the sward. This indicates a massive yield potential for a medium leaved clover and will turn every silage field into a happy hunting ground.
...and on the Prairie
CHIEFTAIN shows good persistency under both high and low nitrogen regimes either under light or hard defoliation.
Performance in summer and autumn is particularly good, proving that CHIEFTAIN is the main candidate for use in dual purpose ley mixtures.
