HarvXtra™ Alfalfa with Roundup Ready® technology is the industry’s first genetically enhanced alfalfa developed to maximize quality, compared to conventional alfalfa at the same stage of maturity, by reducing the amount of lignin in the plant.
Multi-year University of Wisconsin trials of conventional alfalfa have demonstrated a 15-20 percent forage yield advantage for three-cut versus four-cut management systems. at the expense of lower quality.
HarXtra™ alfalfa lets growers delay harvest for 7-10 days to increase tonnage without making that forage quality sacrifice. Fewer cuttings also have the added benefits of less stress on alfalfa stands and reduced harvest costs.
