Latin name: Trifolium alexandrinum
Berseem clover is an annual clover that should be planted early. It is easier to destroy than other clovers, with variations depending on the variety. Its seed size explain its presence in many associations. It is a melliferous cover but with rather late flowering. On the variety side: Multi-cut varieties (producing several stems) tend to regrow after a cut, mechanical destruction or frost, this type is suitable for forage. Single-cut, single-stem varieties do not have this ability, which makes them preferable in a cereal system, for example as a companion plant to rapeseed.
