Company „Dr. Hana Jakešová – clover and grass breeding“ bears the legal form of a physical person with its seat on the territory of the Czech Republic. The firm was established in the year 2003 with the seat in Hladké Životice, Fulnecká street 100. At the disposal there are our own fields and field machinery.
In the year 2010 a variety of collonial bentgrass (Agrostis capillaris L.) was recognized under the brand name „VENCA“.
In the year 2013 two genotypes were registered by the Czech state authority (UKZUZ). The first one was a meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis Huds.) cv. „PASTORELA“, the second genotype was gained via interspecific crossing between tetraploid red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) and zigzag clover (Trifolium medium L.). Hybrid variety is named „PRAMEDI“ and the intellectual property rights are shared with the VÚP Troubsko, the Czech Republic and the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Masaryk University Brno, the Czech Republic.
In the year 2017 we obtained registration for the zigzag clover variety „RUZA“ (Trifolium medium L.) and for Caucasian clover variety “KOZÁK” (Trifolium ambiguum M.BIEB. – 6n).
Our most recent achievement is the registration of the tetraploid red clover cv. „PRESTO“ (Trifolium pratense L.) in 2018.
We Offer a Licensed Multiplication of Our Varieties:
1) Agrostis capillaris L. – variety of collonial bentgrass “VENCA”
“VENCA” is a tetraploid lawn variety. “VENCA” can well serve a component in mixtures intended for establishment of tenuous amenity lawns.
2) Festuca pratensis Huds. – variety of meadow fescue „PASTORELA”
Pastorela is a diploid variety intended for grazing. Pastorela is intended a valuable fodder species. It can be used for shorter term grass and clover/grass mixtures as well as a compound in permanent pastures.
3) Trifolium medium L. x Trifolium pratense L. – interspecific clover hybrid variety „PRAMEDI”
Variety Pramedi was bred on the basis of the interspecific crossing between the plants of red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) cv. Tatra (2n = 4x = 28) and zigzag clover (T. medium L.) (2n = 8x = 64).
Pramedi is intended a forage crop or it can be used in mixtures with grasses for direct feeding or for conservation. Another use of such mixtures might be establishment or renewal of permanent pastures.
According to available information there has not been a variety of this type gained either in Europe or in the rest of the World. The variety is an entirely original accomplishment.
4) Trifolium medium L. – zigzag clover cv. „RUŽA“
Zigzag clover variety „RUŽA“ is very persistent and can be a part of the green for a very long time. It produces long rhizomes and is suitable as a component of meadows and pastures. Thanks to rhizomes the variety can withstand pressing down by cattle. Feeding quality is low but due to high content of isoflavones and namely formononetin and biochanin, the variety can become source for production of these pharmaceutical compounds.
5) Trifolium ambiguum M.BIEB – Caucasian clover cv. „KOZÁK“
Persistent variety with unlimited duration in grass. Due to the production of rhizomes the variety is suitable for meadow and grazing mixtures. Thanks to rhizomes the variety can withstand pressing down by cattle. When sowing it is important to apply special Rhizobin. Agrotechnics is similar to red clovers.
6) Trifolium pratense L. – tetraploid red clover cv. „PRESTO“
Tetraploid variety was recognized based on resistence to clover mildew and lodging. The variety also has higher resistence to fusariosis.
