Best in One-Cut Management Conditions

Spyder is an improved variety selected for its strong dormancy, excellent winterhardiness and improved disease resistance with the creeping rooted trait. It is a synthetic variety developed from a cross of a spreading-type alfalfa onto an elite yielding variety. Yield potential is consistently better than most creeping rooted varieties on the market and it also demonstrates a maturity with slightly quicker regrowth.
