Wondering which alfalfa seed marketer has which Roundup Ready alfalfa varieties available? The table below lists 38 varieties being marketed this spring that have Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies and National Alfalfa and Miscellaneous Legumes Variety Review Board (NAVRB) approval.
For disease and pest resistance information on each variety, the National Alfalfa & Forage Alliance (NAFA) has created an addendum to the 2011 edition of its Winter Survival, Fall Dormancy & Pest Resistance Ratings for Alfalfa Varieties leaflet that was published in Hay & Forage Grower’sNovember 2010 issue. The addendum will be in our March issue on page 14.
To see the 2011 NAFA alfalfa variety leaflet online, as well as coexistence and best management practice documents, visit www.alfalfa-forage.org and look under the Education heading.
Other varieties that don’t have NAVRB approval, or are currently seeking board approval, are also being marketed.
