FSG 408DP Alfalfa

HQ logo web FSG 408DP alfalfa has been bred for deep-set crowns with 61% of the crowns 1 inch to 11⁄2 inches below the soil surface. The deep-set crown trait helps insulate the crown in severe winter weather and protect the crown from animal and equipment traffic. This versatile variety is ideal for three to four cut management sytems where wheel traffic is a concern, or for intensive livestock grazing year after year. With high hay yields, great forage quality, and an excellent disease and insect resistance package, FSG 408DP gives you the flexibility to optimize your management decisions.

  • Dual purpose alfalfa – hay or graze
  • Wide, deep-set crowns
  • Stands up to wheel traffic pressure
  • High yield potential
  • Superior winterhardiness and persistence
