Baralfa 380 BR

Fall Dormancy 4 branch root

  • Branched rooted
  • High forage yielding
  • Winter hardy variety designed for the poorly drained soils

    Baralfa 380 BR brand alfalfa is branched rooted, high forage yielding winter hardy variety designed for the poorly drained soils.  Its root system has been genetically designed with a greater degree of the branch rooted trait.  This trait helps keep more of the root system above the water table and better secures the plant in the ground when freezing and thawing occurs.  The branch-rooted trait will adjust as moisture stresses intensify.  Baralfa 380 BR would be a good companion alfalfa to a highly productive tap rooted variety.
