Roundup Ready® Alfalfa
If you’re focused on getting the most forage from every acre, HarvXtra® alfalfa is ready to perform for you. The cutting-edge trait allows you to increase tonnage without sacrificing quality.
If you delay harvest to get more yield from a conventional alfalfa variety, forage quality takes a big hit. With HarvXtra alfalfa, you can extend the cutting window by up to 10 days to increase tonnage without losing out on quality. In fact, you can achieve up to 20% higher yield1 at harvest with no negative impact to quality compared to conventional alfalfa harvested on the same interval.
HarvXtra alfalfa maintains quality for longer, so you can extend cutting windows to increase yield potential without taking a hit on forage quality
With extended cutting windows, you have the options to reduce the number of cuttings per season and save on harvest costs
HarvXtra alfalfa includes the Roundup Ready® trait to help you reduce weed pressure early on, which improves yield potential over the life of the stand.

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.
