Egyptian Clover (Trifolium alexandrinum)

Egyptian Clover, or Berseem Clover, is a quick growing summer crop that produces a lot of growth when plenty of moisture and some warmth is present. As such, it is highly productive in a typical Irish summer and is often used with an annual ryegrass for silage and hay production. This fast growing combination also makes an excellent catch crop. It has a high growing point so is not suitable for grazing unless you want to get rid of it.
