HarvXtra Alfalfa WE DIDN’T INVENT ALFALFA, WE JUST REINVENTED IT

 Introducing HarvXtra Alfalfa — the industry’s first genetically enhanced alfalfa with reduced lignin. It’s the most advanced alfalfa in the industry. And the biggest advancement in the field.

 

Greater Flexibility
HarvXtra™ technology gives you unprecedented control by widening cutting windows. This gives you the ability to better
manage the yield-versus-quality trade-off. It also adds unsurpassed weed control with Roundup Ready® technology.
• Choose to maintain your current harvest schedule for higherquality forage, or
• Delay harvest a few days for increased tonnage without sacrificing acceptable forage quality.

HarvXtra Alfalfa Yield Versus Quality

Forage quality like no otherThe genetically enhanced HarvXtra™ technology fundamentally changes the relationship between forage quality and stage of maturity by modifying lignin content (ADL) beyond what is possible with conventional breeding techniques.

HarvXtra Alfalfa ADL and NDFD Graphs

In 2015, several trials were planted to compare HarvXtra™ alfalfa and one or more alfalfa varieties selected for improved quality using conventional breeding techniques. The HarvXtra™ trait provided a significant improvement over all commercial check varieties for acid detergent lignin (ADL) and neutral detergent fiber digestibility (NDFD) at every sampling date in this experiment. Lignin (ADL) content in HarvXtra™ alfalfa was more than 20% lower than any of the commercial check varieties at the last sampling date. PDF
