High yield of dry matter and protein
In French conditions Europe will produce an average of 90 ton green matter corresponding to about 18 ton dry matter with 19% protein (>3400 kg protein) per ha.
EUROPE has for a long time been the "reference variety" for the species alfalfa, and confirmed performance in several countries in the fall dormancy level 4 range.
Very high yielding
One of the reasons for the success of EUROPE is the very high annual dry matter production.
The standability is excellent due to deep rooting and strong stems.
Easy hay or silage
The high yield can easily be converted to hay or silage with easier harvest due to the good standability.
