Nykänen, Arja (2004) On-farm estimation of clover content of mixed swards. Paper at: European Society for Agronomy VIII ESA congress, Copenhagen, Denmark, July 11-15, 2004.
Estimation of clover content of mixed swards is difficult in practice. We are currently in the process of developing several on-farm methods for clover content estimaton. Yield samples with known area from several points of the field are separated for clovers and grasses and weighted. The clover content of yield (% in dry matter) can be calculated with formula y=23.90Ln(number of clover plants/m² in spring) - 18.759.
