WL349HQ COATED ALFALFA SEED 50 LB

AAL1349

Broad disease resistance is always a priority on our research teams, constantly looking for additional tolerance across a wide geography. WL 349HQ is a new W-L breakthrough product, following the footsteps of WL 375HVX.RR, released in 2017, as varieties fully-loaded with HR resistance to multiple races of aphanomyces and anthracnose. If top tier yield, quality and persistance under tough soil conditions at establishment or in-crop are your must-haves, you’ve found your next conventional variety.
