Hi-Gest® 360

Low Lignin Technology
Performance
  • First commercially available low lignin alfalfa variety for dormant producers.
  • Whole plant lignin for Hi-Gest 360 is 7-10% lower than other dormant varieties, for improved performance
  • Product of conventional plant breeding.
  • No yield drag, no loss of pest resistance, no reduction in winter hardiness.
Management
  • Adapted to today’s best alfalfa management practices. No on-farm adjustments needed to grow or feed.
  • Hi-Gest 360 alfalfa offers a wider harvest window of up to 7 days if harvest timing is delayed past late bud or one-tenth flower.
  • Rations using Hi-Gest can be easily balanced by nutritionists with the results of an accurate feed test.
Appearance at Harvest Maturity
  • Plants are medium tall, with a dense canopy of stems and leaves.
Agronomics

Fall dormancy class: FD 3
Winter hardiness class: WS 1.5
Multifoliate leaf expression: 73%/Mod MF
FastGrowth rating: 1.83/Avg

PGI 529

StandFast® FastGrowth
Performance
  • For growers who aggressively manage and harvest their alfalfa acres to maximize milk per acre.
  • FastGrowth ability shaves 3-5 days off the time between harvests to maximize seasonal yield.
  • Carries a strong multiple pest package to protect fast-growing plants and aggressively managed acres.
Management
  • Fast-growing variety for production areas that use fall dormancy 4 and 5 alfalfas, and when four or more cuts are expected each season.
  • Very early harvest maturity; reaches late bud or early flower 3 to 5 days ahead of most dormant alfalfas.
  • Very fast green-up after harvest and accelerated growth to harvest maturity.
Appearance at Harvest Maturity
  • Tall and showy, with large leaves.
Agronomics

Fall dormancy class: FD 5
Winter hardiness class: WS 1
Multifoliate leaf expression: 31%/Low MF
FastGrowth rating: 2.21/Vert Fast

Rugged

Traffic & Salinity Tolerance
Performance
  • Especially well adapted to the northern Great Plains and Intermountain West.
  • Fits irrigated or dryland crop management systems.
  • Features bred-in grazing, germination salinity and traffic/compaction tolerance.
Management
  • Versatile variety for the fall dormancy 2-4 production geographies on the northern Great Plains and Intermountain West.
  • Exceptional winter hardiness helps Rugged perform in production systems where other varieties fail.
  • Medium-late harvest maturity.
Appearance at Harvest Maturity
  • Medium-short plant height and a very dense, full canopy of medium green leaves.
Agronomics

Fall dormancy class: FD 3
Winter hardiness class: WS 1
Multifoliate leaf expression: Trifoliate
