Abstract The ability to predict the growth of 124 white clover cultivars in a grass sward under sheep grazing from performance in a spaced plant block was examined. Over a 3-year period the extent of variation in cultivar yield in grass swards explained by growth as spaced plants decreased from 45% in Year 1 to 10% in Year 3. Spaced plants gave a better prediction of performance of large-leaved than smallleaved cultivars. However, lines which had highest scores (i.e., when in the top 10) when… CONTINUE READING
