HarvXtra Alfalfa

400 HVXRR alfalfa gives farmers the tools to manage the yield-versus-quality trade off by allowing for a wider harvest windows, while maintaining peak quality. It’s fully equipped with Roundup Ready® technology for excellence in weed control. Typically as alfalfa plants mature, Neutral Detergent Fiber Digestibility goes down, which means cows can’t eat as much. Plants with HarvXtra trait demonstrated a 10-15% increase in NDFD and Relative Forage Quality when compared to related lines without the HarvXtra trait, meaning cows will be able to eat more and produce more. Plus, this new low lignin alfalfa maintained standability similar to conventional alfalfa.
