A variety characterized for its resistance to several alfalfa pests and diseases, helping to improve forage yield, persistence, and forage quality. Considered highly resistant against fusarium wilt, anthracnose, spotted alfalfa aphid, and more. Another landmark quality lies in its steadfast growth year after year across diverse weather conditions. A non dormant alfalfa with fast growth and higher yield due to greater spring recovery.
Very high yield potential under 3- to 5-cut harvest managements. Unique wet soil disease resistance package (HR to Aphanomyces Race 2) promoting better stand establishment, persistence, and forage yield potential. WL 356HQ.RR carries the “HQ” designation, exhibiting strong potential to deliver optimal feed intake, milk production, and profit potential when fed. Very winterhardy (WH=1.6); WL 356HQ.RR delivers long stand life under adverse weather and soil conditions. Highly resistant to stem nematode. Perfect Disease Resistant Index of 35/35 promotes fast seedling establishment and long stand life. Salt tolerance of germinating seeds similar to resistant check.
Our highest yielding winterhardy RR FD5 released to date. Very high yield potential under 4 to 6-cut harvest schedules. Very winterhardy (WH=1.8): WL 372HQ.RR delivers long stand life even under harsh weather conditions. Very strong disease package with a perfect Disease Resistance Index of 30/30. High resistance to stem nematode. Salt tolerance of germinating seeds similar to resistant check.
Intermediate dormant FD=6.7 and outstanding yield potential under 5, 6, and 7-cut harvest managements. Highly resistant to all major nematode pests. WL 454HQ.RR promotes optimized feed intake, milk production, and greater profit potential when fed. Ideal intermediate variety for cash hay producer; WL 454HQ.RR has consistently produced big yields of leafy, fine-stemmed hay with dark green color and high feed value. Very strong disease resistance.
WL 552HQ.RR is a winter-active, non-dormant FD=8.2 alfalfa. Highly resistant to resistant for all major aphids and nematodes. WL 552HQ.RR has excellent tolerance to leaf diseases, promotes improved leaf retention, higher protein levels, and greater forage quality. Also highly resistant to phytophtora root rot, and resistant to fusarium wilt and anthracnose.

Ideal FD=9 variety for the cash hay producer; WL 665HQ.RR consistently produces big yields of leafy, fine-stemmed hay with high forage quality. Salt-tolerant at seed germination, similar to the salt-tolerant checks. Outstanding persistence and long stand life on your toughest fields.
The industry’s first genetically enhanced alfalfa developed to maximize quality compared to conventional alfalfa at the same stage of maturity, by reducing the amount of lignin in the plant. HarvXtra® gives you unprecedented flexibility by widening cutting windows. This gives you the ability to better manage the yield-versus-quality trade-off. Choose to maintain your current harvest schedule for higher quality forage, or delay harvest a few days for increased tonnage without sacrificing acceptable forage quality.
