The 375 HY/BR Hybrid Alfalfa Story.

    

    The next generation of Hybrid Alfalfa brings more vigor and higher yields to the table, while maintaining the fine stems and superior feed quality hybrid alfalfa is known for. Developed through the patented msSunstra® hybrid technology 375 HY/BR is a Gen-2 hybrid alfalfa offering unparalleled consistency and even higher yields due to its elite agronomic package. 375 HY/BR is branch rooted with a 30/30 DRI and resistance to Aphanomyces Race 2. It can handle wetter soils as well as high yielding well drained soils. Maintaining a rigorous cutting schedule will captilize on the aggressive growth and fast recovery of this hybrid alfalfa. The last 20 years have taught us that you don't want to bet against better science in agriculture. Hybrid alfalfa breeding is better science, enabling more specific selection and more consistent production populations that maximize field performance. Planting 375 HY/BR captures the cutting edge of alfalfa technology and performance today.
