Paraggio

Barrel Medic
Medicago truncatula

PARAGGIO was selected as a replacement for Jemalong and performs well on a range of neutral to alkaline soil types.

PARAGGIO has a larger seed, compared to Jemalong, which helps provide good early seedling vigour. It demonstrates a semi-erect growth habit. It has a slightly lower, hard seed levels in comparison to most other barrel medics. This trait will allow for a stronger regeneration from seed in year two of the pasture phase. This lower hard seed level makes PARAGGIO better suited to shorter term, pasture phase paddocks.

PARAGGIO will provide good levels of forage production and pest resistance for low to medium rainfall zones.

It will grow on a wide range of soils from hard setting loams to cracking clays. It is the barrel medic variety most tolerant of powdery mildew. This disease has been reducing the production potential of medics during the last decade.
