W-L ALFALFAS FIRST NON-DORMANT RELEASE OF HARVXTRA®, A GAME CHANGER FOR THE SOUTHWEST

Top Advantages

HVX840RR Brand, the latest release in the W-L HarvXtra® lineup offers exciting harvest flexibility accomplished by reduced lignin content
  • HarvXtra® Alfalfa gives growers the ability to better manage the yield versus- quality tradeoff, offering more flexibility in cutting schedule to achieve improved forage quality or greater yield potential, when compared to conventional alfalfa at the same stage of maturity
  • The HarvXtra® technology provides unprecedented flexibility by widening cutting windows, which gives growers the option at each cutting to:
    • Maintain their normal harvest schedules for higher-quality forage, or
    • Delay harvest for 5-7 days for increased yield potential, without sacrificing forage quality, compared to conventional alfalfa at the same stage of maturity
  • HarvXtra® Alfalfa has on average 12-14% less lignin and 8-10% higher neutral detergent fiber digestibility (NDFD) than conventional alfalfa harvested at the same stage of maturity
