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 explains its presence in many associations. It is a melliferous cover but with late flowering. Multi-cut varieties (producing several stems) are suitable for forage. They tend to regrow after a cut, mechanical destruction or frost. Single-cut, single-stem varieties do not have this ability, making them preferable in a cereal system, for example as a companion plant to rapeseed.
