Hybrid Alfalfa Adjusts To Moisture Stresses

Dairyland Seed's newest hybrid alfalfa was designed for use in poorly drained soils or fields subject to heaving.

HybriForce-420/Wet has the branched-root trait of the company's Magnum V-Wet — plus the hybrid benefits of increased vigor and more resilient plants. It adjusts to moisture stresses; roots branch out and stay above water level, says Tom Strachota, Dairyland's CEO.

Strengths include high forage yield and quality, fast regrowth after harvest, solid persistence and excellent winter survival, Strachota adds.

It's highly resistant to phytophthora root rot, bacterial and fusarium wilts, and stem and northern root knot nematodes. It's resistant to anthracnose (race 1), verticillium wilt and aphanomyces root rot (race 1).

“HybriForce-420/Wet will perform equally as well as our first hybrid (HybriForce-400),” says Paul Sun, Dairyland vice president of research.

The new hybrid will be marketed this year in limited quantities.
