Barricade SLT is an alfalfa variety well suited to areas with increassed salinity pressures. Selected from parents that endured repeated irrigation under a 100mM NaCl solution in the greenhouse, and endured field soils with >8 EC, Barricade SLT has demonstrated improved germiniation under saline conditions as well as improved forage production. This increased saline tolerance, when combined with high yield potential and an excellent disease and pest resistance package, gives Barricade SLT excellent overall performance and hardiness.
Preferred Growing Conditions
- Improved salt tolerance
- Excellent forage yield potential
- Broad disease and pest resistance
- Bloat hazard
- Needs good drainage
