Factors affecting persistence and vigour of Trifolium semipilosum cv. Safari were investigated in a survey of 41 pastures at 25 sites in south eastern Queensland. Only pastures where Safari had persisted for more than three years were surveyed. Average annual rainfall at survey sites ranged from 650 mm to 1775 mm, and altitude from 2 m to 680 m above sea level, with soil type and aspect also diverse.
