Importance of Red Clover Culture in the Context of Sustainable Agriculture System

Open access


In the context of rising food requirements regarding quality and food safety, it is necessary to obtain high quality of animal productions. In this respect, one of the most important factors which participate in the formation of animal production quality is the quality of feed administered in animal feeding. For this reason, in the present workpaper we intend to study applied technology to improve the quality of red clover for obtaining high forage and quality production in a sustainable agricultural system.

The objectives of this workpaper is to develop solutions for integrating culture of red clover in a sustainable agriculture system, respectively, exploiting of local resources fertilizer, reducing inputs in culture system of fodder in Plain Targoviste, exploiting the potential of improve soil fertility by growing the fodder.
