Comparison rows of Paradana (left) and Taipan (right)

Derived from a polycross of selected, high performance plants of Paradana, Frontier and Bolta, Taipan is a balansa clover of Paradana-type maturity. It has superior herbage and seed production characteristics, and particularly when coupled with the latest PFT technical information relating to its management, will very significantly outperform Paradana in both wheat-sheep zone and permanent pastures. While it is a highly versatile variety, it is best suited where rainfall is between 450 and 600mm. It has good tolerance of waterlogging and moderately saline conditions, and can be grown on sandy loam to clay soils anywhere between pH of 5.5 and 8.5.
