The establishment and persistency of clover is a major issue on farm due to poor soil health. There are three components to soil health that need to be considered before incorporating clover onto your farm. 

Soil structure has a major influence on overall soil health and soil dynamics. 

Soil fertility is key to increasing and optimising efficiency on farm. Soil P and K fertility cannot be fixed unless soil pH is at optimum levels first.

The soil’s biology is extremely sensitive to poor soil structure and suboptimal soil fertility. Biology needs a favourable environment that they can sustain themselves in.
