CRUSADE is a vigorous, large leaf, winter-active variety of intermediate white clover. Because of its winter-active characteristic, CRUSADE will provide extended grazing during the colder months in regions experiencing mild moist winter. Other characteristics include early and vigorous flowering, superior growth and freedom from virus and disease symptoms. In tests, CRUSADE exhibits strong recovery from cutting, grazing and moisture stress.
