Hi every body,

My name’s Bach Mai Xuan and I’m a young farmer in Vietnam. I have been doing Natural Farming and Permaculture for 2 years in Thanh Hoa, VietNam. Temperature In Kerala normally ranges from 15ºC to 37ºC and rains about 1500-2000mm.

I’m looking for perennial cover crop. I have tried white clover from Japan but It is not thriving in summer and died out within the first year. But one day, I have found something here:
- https://www.tropicalgrasslands.asn.au/pastures/clover_kenya.htm
- http://www.tropicalforages.info/key/Forages/Media/Html/Trifolium_semipilosum.htm
- http://www.fao.org/ag/agp/agpc/doc/gbase/data/pf000080.htm

FAO said, "Essentially a tropical white clover, T. semipilosum exhibits the same main attributes as T. repens and in addition can thrive in hotter and drier districts".

So i have thought may Kenya white clover will thrive in my home town. I have tried to looking for Kenya white clover seed. But I couldn't found anywhere sell it.

Anyone help me?

Thank you very much!

This clover sounds intriguing.  I wonder if it would survive here in west Texas.  Unfortunately my "Google-fu" must not be strong today and I couldn't find any suppliers either
 
So it takes a day for light to pass through this glass? So this was yesterday's tiny ad?
