This project will result in the establishment of a seed accreditation scheme for subterranean clover. It is estimated that up to 1000 tonnes of currently uncertified subterranean clover of mixed varieties could be certified annually under the proposed scheme. Pastures sown with accredited seed are likely to be more productive by increasing the amount of seed of known varietal composition in the domestic marketplace. In addition, the project will deliver improvements to the current seed certification scheme for subterranean clover and expand the funding base of the Australian Seeds Authority and RIRDC through the generation of a leviable product.

The project aims to develop a seed test to identify varieties of subterranean clover and to use that test in a seed certification scheme to accredit seed lots of multiple varieties of subterranean clover.
