Tapani is a 21-clone diploid synthetic cultivar of red clover (Trifolium pratense L.). It was developed by phenotypic selection at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Crops and Livestock Research Centre, in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, and at the Soils and Crops Research and Development Centre in Quebec City, Quebec. The original material for this strain was selected from collections made in old stands of red clover in three Atlantic Provinces of Canada. Tapani is early flowering and winterhardy. In Atlantic Canada, Tapani yielded an average of 109% of the check cultivar Marino over three production years. This cultivar has superior re-growth potential with high second-cut herbage yield.
