Excellent stand persistence is achieved through reliable reseeding as well as through the spread of stolons. The sprawling stolons stabilize the soil surface with roots and thick residue which leads to successfully reducing erosion. White clover is such a great fit as a living cover under orchards and vineyards because it can withstand high traffic areas, supplies pollinator species with an additional food source, maintains a low canopy and withstands being mowed within 2″. This species contributes 45% of its N production within its roots, which is higher than most commonly utilized legume cover crop species.
