Ladak II alfalfa is an updated version of the venerable Ladak and is specialized for use on rangeland and dryland pastures. It is adapted for use from the northern plains to the winterhardy intermountain areas of the west where rainfall is limited for extended periods of time. Developed from plants selected out of a 27 year old stand of Ladak in eastern Washington, Ladak II has the drought tolerance of Ladak with improved disease and nematode resistance for increased persistence and adaption to a wider range of soil conditions.
