Genesis

Lucerne
Winter Active 7
Medicago sativa

GENESIS is a winter active Lucerne variety with a dormancy rating of 7. It has a low-lying crown making it extremely well suited to grazing situations, however it can also be grown successfully for both hay and silage.

It will provide moderate levels of herbage production during the winter period, followed by exceptional spring and summer production, due to its ability to access sub-soil moisture.

The multiple pest and disease resistances, coupled with excellent persistence and adaptability, make it an excellent choice for either irrigated or dryland situations.
