Planting Wl662HO.RR alfalfa and utilizing the Genuity® Roundup Ready® weed control system provides many benefits over conventional herbicide programs:

  • Unmatched weed control at both stand establishment and in established stands can mean fewer weeds and higher quality hay and haylage, which can result in more milk per ton fed and higher %TDN when tested
  • Superior crop safety at all growth stages-with the Roundup Ready® weed control system delivers increased yield potential in both the establishment year and subsequent years
  • The simplicity of using a single herbicide (Roundup®) provides superior weed control with no need to tank-mix; one herbicide does it all
  • Flexibility in timing of application allows growers utilizing the Roundup Ready® system to spray when necessary; no carryover or crop rotation limitations
  • Minimal wait (5 days) after Roundup® application before haying/ feeding
