Description

FSM Brand 354-LHR alfalfa is well adapted to a wide range of soils, provided they offer moderate to good drainage and adequate fertility. 354-LHR alfalfa features new generation genetics with a high expression of fine glandular hairs, providing extremely high potato leaf-hopper resistance. 354-LHR also offers above average yields, superior disease resistance, and very good forage quality.

For best results, drill inoculated seed ¼ to ½ inch deep into a firm seed bed. Untreated seed should be inoculated prior to planting with Myco-Seed Treat Rhizobium to support seedling health and vigor. Applying one of our Agri-Energy Alfalfa Fertility Programs can enhance forage quality, maximizing nutrient and mineral content and availability. The digestible energy of your harvest can also be increased by incorporating up to 50% of a high quality grass into the seeding. 354-LHR is able to support an aggressive 28-30 day cutting schedule. Cuttings to be made after September 1st should be delayed until after a killing frost.

Untreated FSM Brand 354-LHR is available, however, always confirm acceptability for organic production with your certifying organization.
