Description

Finally, Roundup Ready® alfalfa is now available and currently varieties show excellent tolerance to Roundup, good disease res i stance, and good yield potential. Before making plans to plant 100 acres know that the price in most states is over $7.00 per pound and pre-ordering seed is essential if you want to plant the spring of 2006. Roundup tolerance is a very useful trait in alfalfa, but remember that Roundup Ready ® varieties are not superior for other traits. Some current advertisement s promote Roundup Ready® varieties as higher yielding and higher quality. These statements are not untrue, but they are based on the fact that weedy stands are lower yielding and lower quality than clean stands. Therefore, if you keep your existing stands weed free, then you will also produce high yields of high quality forage.
