Other Info

Management Keys:
- Recommended for alfalfa growers who aggressively manage their alfalfa.
- More uniform distribution of yield across the season’s cuttings.
- The Fast Recovery trait is expressed in the third crop of the seeding year if direct seeded or in the initial cut of the first hay year if established under a nurse crop or if fall seeded. This will allow less chance for weeds to get started.
- The Improved Standability trait will provide in-field protection against yield loss caused by downed forage starting the year of establishment. Improved standability will allow for more "harvestable quality" and allow the producer to harvest quicker after a wet period because fields with standing alfalfa will dry faster than fields with lodged alfalfa.
- Best adapted to 4-5 cut systems across the traditional fall dorm. 4-5 production zones.
- Reaches Late-bud or Early Flower stage of maturity 3-5 days ahead of most fall dormancy 4 alfalfa varieties.
- For less aggressive managers, Attention II will express better standability in the field than conventional varieties and experience less quality and yield loss due to downed alfalfa.
