The New 5/2 High Yield Leader

In 2002, W-L Alfalfas released its first 5/2 variety, which was an industry breakthrough, decoupling fall dormancy and winterhardiness, allowing growers across the U.S. to realize greater yield potential during the growing season without sacrificing winterhardiness or stand persistence. WL 365HQ is the latest release in the line of high-yielding types packed with HQ levels of forage quality.

WL 365HQ Advantages

  • Very high yield potential and agronomic performance under 4- to 6-cut harvest management systems (FD=4.9), and now our highest-yielding winterhardy conventional HQ released to date
  • HQ forage-quality levels make an ideal variety for cash hay or dairy producers
  • Extremely winterhardy (WH=1.1); WL 365HQ delivers outstanding cold tolerance and long stand life, even under harsh weather conditions
  • An almost perfect disease resistance index (DRI) of 34/35 for solid yield potential and stand persistence across a wide range of soil types and climates
  • Quick regrowth after cutting with outstanding standability for intensive management systems
  • Dark green, fine-stemmed and a highly palatable HQ variety
  • WL 365HQ delivers fast recovery, quickly closing the canopy to outpace yield-robbing weeds
  • Very well-adapted and selected for use in the Midwestern, Northwestern, Central Plains or Northeastern regions of the U.S.
