Roundup Ready® Alfalfa
GET XTRA CONTROL AND XTRA QUALITY WHERE IT COUNTS.
HarvXtra® Alfalfa with Roundup Ready® Technology can increase your cutting flexibility giving you higher quality or increased yield potential. Conventional alfalfa breeding doesn’t compete with those valuable xtras.
HarvXtra Alfalfa delivers a higher RFQ and NDFd than conventional varieties cut on the same day. On average, 14-18 percent higher forage quality (RFQ) and NDFD across cuttings than conventional varieties harvest at the same stage of maturity.1
If your operation needs more tonnage, you have the flexibility to achieve up to a 20% higher yield at harvest2 by extending your cutting window up to 10 days.
Roundup Ready® Technology delivers unsurpassed weed control and crop safety.
