● Early Forage Production
● Early Maturity, 24-30 days earlier than Yuchi or Apache Arrowleaf Clover
● Adapted to Sandy - Loamy acid Soils.
● Deep Rooted
● Due to its early maturity, Cefalu is suitable for grazing – using less moisture and producing similar amounts of forage than other varieties of Arrowleaf Clover
Cefalu is an early maturing arrowleaf clover, which demonstrates excellent early season production and improved drought tolerance. Cefalu produces thick stems with many tillers and large leaves which produce a distinctive “V” shape marking that is a characteristic of arrowleaf clover. Cefalu has excellent seed production ability and a high level of hard seed, which contributes to good re-seeding traits. It has excellent tolerance to acid soils but will not tolerate extended water logging and thus heavy soils must be avoided.
Cefalu Arrowleaf can be used for hay, silage or green manure. Its tall erect growth habit makes it well suited for oat or ryegrass hay mixtures. Cefalu can provide high feed quality (18-22% Crude Protein) and is ideal for hay, with excellent forage production during the spring and early summer period.
