Make Your Farm Yours Again©
Leading Edge is the highest pest and disease resistant alfalfa that Prairie Creek Seed offers. This alfalfa was brought into the lineup for its high disease tolerance and exceptional yields compared to other commercial varieties in research trials. Leading Edge is highly resistant to both Aphanomyces races one and two. It is also resitant to many other diseases; giving it a 30/30 resistance rating. Leading Edge is faster to recover after harvest than most standard alfalfas, making it an ideal companion for Prairie Creek Seed’s Pillar or Upper Edge. The fast recovery and disease tolerance also give Leading Edge great establishment and persistence.
Pillar is a high-yielding alfalfa featuring the unique StandFast® Fast Growth trait that offers up to 30 percent faster growth than competitive alfalfa varieties, resulting in extra cuttings and more harvestable yield each season. Pillar can produce an extra four to six inches of growth in the first 21 days after each harvest. Pillar will reach harvest maturity three to five days ahead of other alfalfas. This fast recovery after cuttings provides the potential for an additional cutting throughout the growing season. Pillar’s fast establishment increases the opportunity for better, thicker new seeding year stands, resulting in longer life and finer stems for improved forage quality.
Upper Edge is an alfalfa that offers the best of both worlds: superior forage quality and exceptional yield potential. This high, multi-leaf expression alfalfa was specifically bred for a higher Relative Forage Quality (RFQ), resulting in better fiber digestibility and more milk per acre. Upper Edge is highly resistant to all major alfalfa diseases including Anphanomyces races one and two, allowing for Upper Edge to perform well on tougher soils where disease pressure is an issue. Upper Edge will respond well to heavy traffic and has been tested in three, four and five cutting scenarios. Upper Edge had a yield advantage over the heavy traffic benchmark alfalfa used as a check.
