White Clover Variety
- Dormancy: Osceola™ ‘XP-1’ is intermediate between true ladino-type white clovers like ‘Regal’ and intermediate-type white clovers like ‘Louisiana S-1’.
- Disease Resistance: Osceola™ ‘XP-1’ has better seed production in SE USA than ladino type white clovers and thus can have improved persistence through natural reseeding.
- Yield: Higher DM yields than intermediate-type white clovers like ‘LA S-1’ and greater persistence through the summer months.
- Use: Has shown excellent production and persistence at multiple locations throughout the central USA as well as in the Coastal Plains.
Description: Osceola™ was developed by the University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. It has good seed production for a ladino-type and improved summer persistence. Several tests have shown Osceola™ to be higher yielding and more persistent than ‘Louisiana S-1’.
