White clover equivalent for southern India

Hi All,

I would like to try a live mulch which is equivalent to white clover. I am from Kerala,India (South India) and in this hot climate white clover does not grow well. Idea is to use a live mulch cover crop for rice cultivation. Some one suggested Sub clover and seeds are not available here. Any one can suggest an equivalent live mulch or any sources sub clover seeds?


If any one can send a few grams of seeds, I can send Fukuoka's Happy Hill rice seeds in return.


Regards,
Nandan

I have been trying out perennial peanut, one issue is that cuttings are used for planting which is not that easy....Any one has tried perennial peanut with rice or any cereals?
