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.
