Lander Alfalfa has been very successful in the Intermountain West. It is our best-selling alfalfa 6 years running. It excels in dryland and irrigated situations. Lander has established a strong market in Utah where it exceeds expectations in challenging soil conditions, high winds and temperature extremes. It performs well in sandy, silty, alkali and salt soils of Eastern Utah and Nevada. It is a favorite of cubing facilities and forage producers for it’s leafy nutrient-rich dark green foliage. Lander demonstrates excellent winter survival and is resistant to stem nematodes and verticillium wilt.
The University of Wyoming Plant Science Department in Powell WY developed Lander Alfalfa. It demonstrates good tolerance to harsh conditions. Lander shines in areas with high wind, extreme daily temperature swings, poor soil conditions and varying water.
Brown root rot occurs in numerous north American and Canadian locations and is often an unrecognized contributor of winter kill. Lander resists brown root rot and was the first alfalfa in the United States selected for the trait. Parent plants were selected after surviving seven years of Wyoming winters in soils with natural infestations of BRR.
In Montana and Wyoming Lander performed well in alfalfa variety trials under irrigated and dryland conditions.
