FSG229CR alfalfa is a highly persistent, rhizomatous alfalfa specialized for utilization in dry land pastures. As the alfalfa stand matures, rhizomes develop forming new crowns which increase stand density. FSG229CR excels in both hay and pasture type production. It expresses a branch rooted trait that allows the plant better tolerance to wet soil conditions. We have seen great success with this variety in dense, compacted clay soils where other varieties struggle to establish.

FSG229CR It is very winter hardy and resistant to multiple diseases.
