Continued Advancements in Conventional Alfalfa

Nematode-resistant alfalfa protects yield and stand life, especially for growers in the western United States and the Central Plains, where pressure is high. Many of our alfalfa varieties now carry a unique resistance package to a wide nematode complex, based on:
  • 20 years of research
  • Extremely challenging testing environments
  • Rigorous screening and evaluation
Salt-tolerant alfalfa reduces plant stress and increases crop production for growers who face the twin problems of high soil salinity and low rainfall. We are developing new varieties set apart by:
  • Tolerance to multiple stresses common in saline soils
  • Our unique multi-step breeding methods
