Alfalfa (Medicago sativa)

High persistence and healthy

PLANET is one of the best alfalfa varieties. It has a good resistance to Verticillium and Fusarium as well as high persistence and stable yields. Another advantage of PLANET is its high green matter and protein yield in all cuts. PLANET can be used for three continuous years and is especially useful on sites susceptible to Verticillium.
Due to the excellent variety performance, PLANET is listed in many Eastern European countries (DE, PL, RU, BY, UA, TR; in trials in SI, KZ). PLANET is in dormancy group 3-4*.

In March 2014, Planet was awarded a golden medal for being an outstanding product during the 14th Ferma Bydła, the largest and most important trade fair for livestock farming in Poland. The alfalfa PLANET received this great honour for its excellent combination of the most important alfalfa variety characteristics - high dry matter and protein yields, very good over-wintering and health. Due to these characteristics, PLANET is readily and successfully cultivated by a number of agricultural enterprises in Poland.

COBORU 2010 


* Most alfalfa plants go dormant in the fall in preparation for winter. Early fall dormant types show very little growth after the September clipping, later fall dormant types demonstrate substantial growth. Fall dormancy is measured on a (1-9) scale, where 1=very early fall dormant and 9=non-dormant. The fall dormancy classes (2-4) are winterhardy types.

National listing/Official recommendation: BY, DE, KZ, PL, RU, TR, UA
