The effect of row spacing and leaf size on white clover cultivars seed production

Research Overview

Jess is interested in the physiological changes between two white clover cultivars and the impact row spacing has on growth, development and seed production. She is monitoring changes in tagged stolens to track growth and development as well as quantifying canopy light interception. In February she will be conducting destructive harvests to determine the impact row spacing has on production of the two cultivars. Jess is supervised by Prof. Derrick Moot and Richard Chynoweth from the Foundation for Arable Research (FAR).
