Barduro is a persistent red clover named for its hardiness and durability. In the hay cutting trial at the Auburn Extension Research Center in Crossville, Alabama–during their worst drought in 25 years–Barduro was the only experimental clover to survive. The trial continued the following year and the drought became the worse recorded in 100 years. Barduro survived this trial as well. It is extremely drought and heat tolerant, making it a perfect choice for dry or sloped pastures.
In additional trials, Barduro has proved competitive in stands of fescue, orchardgrass and bermudagrass, making it an excellent choice for overseeding pastures. Research data from trial locations in Tennessee, Georgia, Florida and Louisiana show high yield potential, making Barduro an excellent choice for hay production. Due to its persistent nature and durability, Barduro is also well suited for grazing.
