Barenbrug’s E2-631 was developed for optimum quality and yield! The addition of 10% very late maturing orchardgrass increases the drought tolerance of the blend. Yields of E2-631 are nearly double when compared to alfalfa alone, while the grass components significantly increase the digestible energy of the forage, winter hardiness, and stand longevity. This specialty combination is coated with Barenbrug’s proprietary Yellow Jacket® seed coating, which can absorb up to 600 times its own weight in water, ensuring adequate moisture for germination and establishment.
For best results, seed E2-631 ½”deep into a firm seed bed at a rate of 25#/acre. Harvest when the grasses reach the boot stage or the alfalfa is in pre-bloom. E2-631 should be cut at or above 3” to minimize damage to the grasses. Applying Myco-Seed Treat and an Agri-Energy Alfalfa Fertility Program can help maximize the quality, health and longevity of the stand. The final cutting should be scheduled to allow 4-6” of regrowth before the alfalfa enters dormancy.
