408DP Dual Purpose Alfalfa



408DP Dual Purpose Alfalfa is one of the most outstanding broad-spectrum, all-purpose alfalfas available. It is a premium alfalfa that can be cut for hay then grazed off in the fall. It has rapid regrowth after cutting, resulting in a quality pasture/grazing crop for fall and winter. Characteristics include:

● Wide, deep-set crowns
● Stands up to wheel traffic pressure
● High yield potential
● Superior winter hardiness and persistence

FSG 408DP alfalfa has been bred for deep set crowns with 61% of the crowns 1 to 1 1/2 inches below the soil surface. The deep set crown trait helps insulate the crown in severe winter weather and protect the crown from animal and equipment traffic. This versatile variety is ideal for 3 to 4 cut management systems where wheel traffic is a concern or for intensive livestock grazing year after year. With high hay yields, great forage quality and an excellent disease and insect resistance package, FSG 408DP gives you the flexibility to optimize your management decisions. In Utah it has proven to be an excellent performer in heavy soils.
