Shockwave BR

Branch Rooted to Tolerate Wet Soils

Shockwave BR combines a branch rooted trait with a superior disease resistance package to deliver outstanding performance. In areas that can have higher water tables, the branch root of Shockwave BR allows it to keep more of the root system above the water table and also gives it a better resistance to heaving pressure crated from freeze-thaw cycles. This characteristic, combined with Schockwave BR's high forage yield, make it a productive variety in both normal and wetter conditions.
