Secure Branch Root alfalfa combines high resistance to pathogens and a unique rooting trait which allows it to grow better than other alfalfas on wet soils. It has a Disease Index Rating of 34 out of 35 with a notable resistance to Aphanomyces root rot (Race 2). Its root system has been conventionally bred with a greater degree of the branch-rooted trait. This helps keep more of the root system above the water table which better secures the plant in the ground when freezing and thawing occurs. The branch-rooted trait will adjust as moisture stresses intensify. It is a multi-leaf type alfalfa. In general, alfalfa is one of the highest yielding forage plants available. Where adapted, alfalfa does well alone or in a mixture with tall-growing grasses. Alfalfa produces best on well-drained soil with good water holding capacity and pH of 6.5 or above. It is long-lived and drought resistant.

Grower’s Note: This seed has a protective coating and comes pre-inoculated with rhizobacteria. Alfalfa is a member of the legume plant family and forms a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with rhizobacteria in the soil. The bacteria help capture nitrogen from the air and makes it available to the plant roots, which improves overall plant growth. However, rhizobacteria is not always present in the soil, especially if the host legume has not been grown in the target area in the last three years. Therefore, this seed is pre-inoculated to jump-start that symbiotic relationship. Coating the seed helps aid in germination and establishment. For specific information about the coating materials, please call our customer service department at 1-877-247-3736.
