Type: cool season perennial
Uses: Rackmaster® Durana White Clover is the newest white clover on the market for whitetail deer management. Durana was developed by Dr. Joe Bouton, while at the University of Georgia, to persist under grazing pressure, tolerate acidic soils, compete aggressively with weeds and grasses and to tolerate low management situations.
Durana, unlike ladino clover, is an intermediate white clover. Intermediate clovers have a medium leaf size and a leaf density that is very thick, from the ground to the top of the plant. This leaf density will help prevent weed invasion. Durana possesses a high stolon density; it has 97 stolons per square foot, unlike conventional ladino clovers which only have 52 per square foot. It is pre-inoculated and lime coated for easy seeding and optimal nitrogen fixation. Durana will outlast conventional ladino clovers in food plots and persist for years on good moisture holding soils. With protein levels of over 25% and digestibility of over 75%, Durana will make an excellent pure stand or combination planting for any food plot to feed, attract and hold game on your property. Durana is persistent, productive and a highly preferred white clover.

"A nice, mature 9-pointer. A stocky, short deer – no neck - 171#. Guessing he will age at 5.5 years - maybe older... 110 yards, .270 caliber ... dropped in his tracks."
"Came out an hour before sunset to feed on some Pennington Durana Clover – they can’t resist it!"
