Description

FSM Brand 414-BR alfalfa offers an outstanding disease and pest resistance package allowing it to excel under heavy disease pressure! It’s branch root characteristic improves resistance to excessive moisture, freezing and thawing; while producing high quality forage with excellent yield potential. 414-BR is very persistent, recovering quickly from each cutting and producing late into the fall with good winterhardiness. 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 encourage health and vigor. Applying one of our customized Agri-Energy Alfalfa Fertility Programs can enhance production of high quality forage with excellent nutrient and mineral availability. The digestible energy of your harvest can also be increased by incorporating up to 50% of a high quality grass into the seeding. 414-BR is well-adapted to 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 414-BR is available, however, always confirm acceptability for organic production with your certifying organization.
