Microclover® is a unique clover plant developed by DLF Pickseed breeders. It is a very tiny white clover featuring all the benefits of traditional clover and more. Microclover® is gaining in popularity around the world as a natural solution for a dense, healthy turf in areas requiring low maintenance. When used at a low rate in grass seed mixtures, Microclover® will produce a beautiful self sustaining lawn. The Microclover® plants create a canopy within the grasses that prevents weeds, such as dandelions, from establishing. It also fixes atmospheric nitrogen into a usable form of natural fertilizer for the grass. The Microclover® plants are evenly dispersed via stolons, resulting in an attractive blending of grasses and clover. White grubs prefer not to eat Microclover® roots and the adults don't prefer to lay their eggs in Microclover®. Thus, Microclover® combined with tall fescues can help control grub damage in turf applications.
