For spring 2013 planting, Channel brand Genuity Roundup Ready alfalfa offerings will include the new RR440 brand, a Fall Dormancy 4 seed with outstanding forage quality, crop safety and healthier, faster stand establishment.

“The RR440 brand offers high forage yield potential and quality and can be widely adapted for most yield environments,” said James Bosch, specialty crops line product manager.


“It also includes a strong disease package, with a Disease Resistance Index score of 30 out of 30.”

The Channel brand Genuity Roundup Ready alfalfa system can deliver unsurpassed weed control and superior crop safety allowing for higher yield potential and higher-quality alfalfa.

Research shows that using Roundup agricultural herbicides with Genuity Roundup Ready alfalfa allows improved management practices that lead to higher-quality hay. Benefits include:

  • Superior crop safety for healthier, faster-growing stands.
  • Broadest application flexibility—you can spray up to 5 days before harvest.
  • Fewer weeds in every bale, resulting in better quality feed.
  • Increased, high-quality yield opportunity.
