Vista (Trifolium michelianum) is an annual pasture legume that grows during the winter and spring periods. Vista is a late maturing (similar to Bolta), hard seeded Annual Clover that is well suited for medium to high rainfall environments.
Vista demonstrates semi erect growth when grown in a pasture mixed situation but will remain prostrate if grown as a pure sward or grazed. Leaf size and shape can vary significantly. Vista generally has plain leaves or leaves with a white crescent and demonstrates little pink or silver colouration, as can be observed with Frontier or Paradana. Vista Balansa can provide excellent forage production particularly in spring conditions.
Vista is an excellent pasture variety which is suited to heavy grazing. It is highly digestible (14-18% crude protein) and can be used on its own or in pasture blends.
