FSM Brand 421-BR alfalfa’s branching trait keeps more of the root system above the water table, showing greater expression as moisture stress increases. Branch-roots better secure the plant during periods of freezing and thawing, making the plants less susceptible to heaving. 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.
