Many factors affect production of high quality alfalfa including the plant itself and the weed control in the field. Traffic Tested® alfalfa produces large and deep set crowns with high root and crown carbohydrate reserves for regrowth and winter survival. When combined with the Genuity® Roundup Ready® system, you also can have unsurpassed weed control for higher quality and higher yielding forage. Managing harvests and cutting schedules to lower dry matter losses also increases quality.
