Enlarged offer of legume species
With the arrival of Greenmed the offer of legumes for turf is enlarged. The turf type white clovers, Micro-clover®, have proven their efficiency. For southern or dryer regions, the Microclover may reach their limits and the turf alfalfa can complete or substitute the clover.
Deep tap roots
Alfalfa has tap roots and is not producing stolons or rhizomes. The growth habit is moreover erect but for Greenmed more prostrate than forage types. The deep rooting is one of the explanations for the exceptional performances under drought.
In mixtures only
We recommend using Alfalfa Turf in mixtures with grasses - not alone. About 5-6% per weight is a good level of incorporation.
Drought tolerant and N source
The symbiosis with rhizobium bacteria allows restitution of nitrogin for the needs of the alfalfa plant but also the surrounding grassess. And with the excellent stay-green capacity during drought, there are good reasons to incorporate Greenmed.
GREENMED seed is pre-inoculated with Rhizobium meliloti avoiding the fastidious manual inoculation prior to sowing.
For best persistency we recommend a mowing heigth of 3,5 cm or higher.
