Kopu II was selected for stolen density, persistence under grazing, high yield, and large leaf size. This was achieved primarily by selection under cattle grazing in the northern United States and sheep grazing in New Zealand.
Kopu II, bred by AgResearch Grasslands of New Zealand, was selected from a world collection of white clovers. Penn State University and the University of Wisconsin participated in the selection and evaluation of the cultivar. In trials in Lancaster, Arlington, and Marshfield, Wisconsin Kopu II has exhibited improved yield and persistence over Alice (known as the industry standard).
