CIGALE

Exceptional yield of protein and dry matter

Plant breeding again shows continous progress despite believing we already reached a level hard to equal.
Combining high dry matter yield without giving away on the protein content = High protein yield/ha.

Better and better resistance to a range of diseases important for alfalfa production

Resistance to Verticillium is now "evident" for every new variety and other diseases are now developing and given priority during the breeding process. One of the focus diseases, now also mentioned by the French dyhydration industry, is anthracnose (Colletotrichum trifolii).  CIGALE obtained a stunnig "9" on the 1-9 scale used for ranking varieties on the officiel French list.

Safe production and harvest

Like all recent varieties out of the DLF alfalfa breeding program, CIGALE has excellent resistance to lodging = Secure forage production and faster & easier harvest.
