Abstract

On many farms in Western Australia, the rolling, threshing and grading of subterranean clover seed is an important lucrative sideline. An industry that was in it's infancy 20 years ago, now employs thousands of men on hundreds of properties in the Great Southern and South-West during the summer months. Last season 2,000 tons of cleaned seed approximating £500,00 in value was produced. Besides the important export trade, clover seed is essential for the establishment of pastures within the State, large quantities being required for extensive land development at present in progress.
