- Trifolium pratense L. is an important forage legume widely cultivated in most temperate regions because of its characteristics of high seedling vigor, rapid growth, and tolerance to acidic and humid conditions. It is also used as a green manure crop because of its high nutrient content resulting partly from symbiosis with nitrogen fixing bacteria of the genus Rhizobium. It has a diploid genome (2n = 2x = 14), with a DNA content of 0.97 pg/2C,7 which is slightly larger than that of rice.
