FSM Brand 535-HY alfalfa offers excellent cutting recovery, outperforming other varieties in both quality and quantity! 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 nodulation, seedling health and vigor. Applying an Agri-Energy Alfalfa Fertility Program can enhance nutrient uptake and mineral availability.
The digestible energy of the forage can also be increased by including up to 50% of a high quality Barenbrug grass into the seeding. 535-HY alfalfa offers a broad disease resistance package, including resistance to many common pests. Developed for superior winter hardiness, 535-HY breaks dormancy early and continues to produce well on aggressive 28-30 day cutting schedule. Cuttings to be made after September 1st should be delayed until after a killing frost.
Untreated FSM Brand 535-HY is available, however, always confirm acceptability for organic production with your certifying organization.
