Medicago sativa


A specialist for sub optimal conditions, but not only!


Ludelis is a winter hardy Lucerne variety with dense, leafy appearance and fast, even establishment.

Good establishment and high yield

Ludelis showed strong and even establishment and a high yield in trials at a location with non optimal conditions for Lucerne (low pH, sandy soil). This appearance stayed for all three trial years and gave no room for weed invasion in german trails.

Good disease resistance

Ludelis is resistant to the most important Lucerne diseases like verticillium and other diseases.
