With a fall dormancy of 7, ZENITH extends its growing season with earlier spring growth and later growth decline in the autumn, compared to a dormancy 4 type. ZENITH reached 25 cm heigth in spring 5 days earlier than the average of the check varieties.
The longer growing period allows 6 cuts in average per year.
High protein content and total protein yield
The deep strong rooting allows production before and during dryer spells leading to a total high dry matter production.
Combined with the high protein content of alfalfa, the total yield of energy and protein per ha is very high.
Productive for several years
Sown at 20-25 kg/ha, ZENITH will produce through 3-4 years after sowing.
