SF Force 11
Maximum winter feed
SF Force 11 is a new lucerne with exceptional winter activity. It has an excellent pest and disease package and is a major step forward for winter production from lucerne. It is well suited to short phase dryland farming systems and especially intensive cutting or grazing under irrigation. It can enable higher yields of premium lucerne at a time of year when fresh hay commands a premium price. For specialist hay production sow highly winter active types at higher rates to improve stand density and ensure finer stems.
Most winter active variety
Provides more feed when it is needed most
High winter yields
Suited to cutting for premium fresh hay price over winter
Good pest and disease resistance
Maintains plant survival for improved density
High total yields
Will out-perform more dormant types in areas where lucerne is used for cutting or grazing over winter. Enables higher quality conserved fodder which will provide more meat and milk per hectare
