Highly persistent with Red Legged Earth Mite resistance

Bindoon offers the benefits of Red Legged Earth Mite resistance combined with highly productive mid season growth. Bindoon is suited to a wide range of environments where sub clover is the base of a perennial pasture system. Red Legged Earth Mite resistance significantly increases the autumn and winter production as well as increases seed set which greatly enhances long term persistence. 

Pasture seed sowing rate (sole): 10-20kg/ha
Pasture seed sowing rate (mixed): 6-10kg/ha

Sowing and Establishment

Bindoon sub clover pasture seed should be sown at 4-6 kg/ha in pasture mixes Superstrike® treated to ensure successful establishment. When sowing a specialist Bindoon sub clover stand for hay or grazing, a sowing rate of 8-12 kg/ha should be used.

Bindoon is compatible with most perennial pasture grasses and performs well in a mixture with cocksfoot, phalaris, tall fescue or perennial ryegrass. After sowing, there should be only light grazing or none at all until seedlings are firmly established and cannot be pulled out or trampled by stock. This is usually about six weeks after germination.

Grazing Management

During its early stages of development, Bindoon sub clover should not be heavily grazed, however once mature, the stocking rates can be increased. As with all sub clovers, grazing up to flowering will improve seed set. Once flowering begins, stocking rates should be reduced to allow for maximum seed production.


Minimum 500mm rainfall per annum unless irrigated
