Alfalfas

Alfalfas

Alfalfa, recognized worldwide as the "Queen of Forages", is the backbone of many forage systems in the Midwest. Alfalfa is a nutrient dense forage that has good summer production. With its deeper root system, alfalfa will continue to grow and yield better than most other forages under less than ideal moisture situations.

Our alfalfas are hand selected by a group of dairy farmers, agronomists, and dairy nutritionists from hundreds of varieties in side-by-side trials, and evaluated in on-farm performance trials. They are selected to meet the needs of today's top alfalfa growers for forage quality, yield, and stand life.

  • Pillar Alfalfa Standfast Alfalfa w/ Nitro coating

    Pillar is a high yielding alfalfa featuring the unique Standfast Fast Growth trait that offers up to 30% faster growth than the other competitive alfalfa varieties, resulting in extra cuttings and more harvestable yield each season. Developed from crossing fast growing, tall European alfalfas onto North American plants and screened for high yield potential, persistence, and high forage quality. Pillar comes from a breeding program that utilizes a systems approach to plant breeding. This systems approach to plant breeding fits well with both conventional and organic alfalfa growers that utilize rotations and livestock inputs. Both the livestock producer and the commercial hay grower benefit from the fast growth and high forage quality. Pillar can produce an extra 4 to 6 inches of growth in the first 21 days after each harvest and reach maturity 3 to 5 days ahead of other alfalfas. This fast recovery after cuttings maximizes the total number of productive harvests each season. Ideal for the 4 to 5 cut harvest system. Pillar seed production is in place to adhere to CROPP seed policy. Fall dormancy 4.0, winter hardiness index 1.5, WDI 35/35. Seeding rate 15-20 lbs per acre. Preinoculated with Nitro. 50 lb bag.
