What makes it special?
Ruru is our upgraded replacement for Weka. It is similar in type, with more aggressive growth and higher year-round yield, particularly in summer.
All systems will benefit from Ruru - dairy, cattle, sheep and deer.
More free nitrogen
Higher yield means more free nitrogen for your farm, so you can save on fertiliser costs and lighten your environmental footprint. Ruru grows enough extra to give you up to 14 kg nitrogen/ha/year more than some other similar clovers (based on a fixation rate of 28 kg nitrogen/ha per tonne of clover1).
Treat animals in summer
Plenty of clover in summer makes animals happy and productive. Ruru flourishes in warm weather, guaranteeing more energy and protein when grass is not always at its best.

Shines in summer
Lasts in the pasture
Bred for high grazing tolerance, strong spreading growth and good tolerance of clover root weevil, Ruru is a stayer, not a sprinter.
