Clover root weevil an issue? Try a non-clover break crop.

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.
