Clover root weevil an issue?

If clover root weevil is an issue in your area, pasture renewal should incorporate a non-clover break crop. This weevil cannot survive in the absence of clover so a clover free break crop provides a temporary weevil free environment that will allow clover seedlings to establish before the weevil reinvades. This will also reduce plant nematodes, plant pathogens and weeds and benefit the new pasture.
