  • Leaf Size Medium-Large
  • Pasture Life Perennial
  • Grazing Seasons Autumn, Spring, Summer, Winter

• New generation medium to large-leaved white clover
• Very high total productivity
• Maintains high productivity under a wide range of grazing management practices
• Ideal for sheep and beef pastures, finishing pastures, dairy and dairy support pastures
• Bred in New Zealand by world leaders in white clover breeding

Attribute is a new medium to large-leaved white clover which is the next generation of genetic improvement in this most widely used white clover category in New Zealand. To be selected from our extensive white clover breeding programme to replace it's predecessor Tribute, Attribute has had to show a high level of performance in dryland sheep pastures under both set stocking and rotational grazing in Canterbury, while being just as successful in the intensive grass growing areas of the rotationally grazed cattle pastures in the upper North Island

Attribute white clover

Attribute is the perfect white clover base for a clover mix. Attribute and Nomad (medium-small leaved) white clover mixes are suitable for pastures that could be summer dry and/or spend significant time set stocked. Attribute and Brace (large-leaved white clover) mixes are suitable where fertile productive pastures are growing a lot of drymatter and the clover needs to be able to compete with aggressive grass growth.
