We develop cutting-edge trait technologies that deliver top-notch performance and results.
Roundup Ready® Alfalfa
When raising forage for livestock, it's not just about tons per acre. Forage quality and digestibility mean just as much for your ROI.
Alfalfa quality decreases as the plant matures. With HarvXtra® Alfalfa, that quality starts higher from the beginning. HarvXtra Alfalfa provides a 14-20% improvement in neutral detergent fiber digestibility (NDFd)1 across cuttings compared to conventional varieties harvested at the same stage of maturity.
Achieve higher quality alfalfa while maintaining your typical cutting schedule.
Less lignin means higher neutral detergent fiber digestibility (NDFD) for improved digestibility.
HarvXtra alfalfa includes the Roundup Ready® trait for better weed control, less weeds and better feed quality.
By reducing the amount of lignin in the plant, HarvXtra® Alfalfa trait technology fundamentally changes the relationship between forage quality and stage maturing. Less acid detergent lignin (ADL) means higher neutral detergent fiber digestibility (NDFD) for improved digestibility.

1 Data comes from FGI trials comparing HarvXtra Alfalfa with Roundup Ready Technology 2017 FD4 commercial varieties to FD4 commercial checks. Trials were seeded in 2013 and harvested in 2014, 2015 and 2016 in Boone, IA; Mt. Joy, PA; Nampa, ID; Touchet, WA; and West Salem, WI. Yield increase was directly correlated to the ability to delay harvest.
