Why is AA different than previous alfalfa?

LegenDairy AA

See the Difference with Croplan Alfalfa.

CROPLAN AA varieties show stronger roots, healthier plants, higher yield, and increased stand persistence potential over the life of a stand.

New CROPLAN AA varieties offer Aphanomyces race 1, race 2, and Enhanced Multi-Race (EMR) resistance + Anthracnose all races (including race 5) resistance: HVX MegaTron AA and HVX MegaTron, RR AphaTron AA and RR AphaTron 2XT, Rebound AA, GUNNER AA, and LegenDairy AAAA varieties provide significant improvement in both yield and quality potential due to:
  • Stronger roots leading to bigger plants which can uptake more water and nutrients. This all leads to increased yield potential and increased stand persistence potential all of which lead to an increased net return per acre for the grower

Temperature fluctuations during winter tend to present challenges for calf raisers across the Midwest and many farms will see an uptick in respiratory issues. More calves are being raised in barns or other housing with greater protection from the elements and these structures rely on natural ventilation to provide clean, fresh air to the calves. This works well in the summertime; however, as doors, windows and curtains are closed in the winter, providing sufficient air exchanges to keep calves healthy can be challenging.

As we write the last few paragraphs of our 2022 crop season, we are also in the process of making plans for a successful 2023 season that will be here before we know it.
