  • The Hannas High Tech Alfalfa Brand is a blend of 5 certified Alfalfa varieties. The blend consists of three tap root (standard) varieties, one multi leaf and one creeping root variety. The standard varieties indicate good cold tolerance, good drought tolerance, very good winterhardiness. Useful in one to two cut harvest programs and in intensively managed grazing programs. The creeping rooted variety is extremely winterhardy and drought tolerant.
  • Orchardgrass grows best on moist, highly fertile, well drained soils and is best adapted to the warmer areas of the Gray Wooded Soils, the Black Soils receiving more than 450 cm (18 in) of precipitation and the areas under irrigation.Orchardgrass is moderately winter hardy and will withstand short periods of drought.Orchardgrass is moderately tolerant of acid and saline conditions but will not tolerate alkaline conditions.

    Orchardgrass is a high yielding grass species that regrows quickly to yield more than one crop or cutting per year and starts to grow fairly early in the spring.

    Orchardgrass is well adapted for hay production and is an excellent grass for pasture that will be preferentially grazed by livestock in mixed stands.

    Orchardgrass is the most shade tolerant and one of the most digestible and palatable grass species.

  • Brome is suitable for a variety of soil and climate conditions. It is best adapted to the moister parts of the Dark Brown, the Black and the Gray Wooded Soil Areas and the Irrigated Areas but will adapt to a wide range of growing conditions.Brome is winter hardy, fairly alkali tolerant and moderately tolerant of acid and saline soils.Brome is used extensively as a high yielding grass for both hay & pasture. It is a high producing grass for grazing; the majority of the production occurs in the spring and early summer, goes dormant during the summer, and some slow regrowth in late summer and fall.

    Brome is higher in protein and lower in energy than many of the other grass species at the same stages of maturity.

  • Timothy is adapted to the wetter parts of the Black and the Gray Wooded Soil areas and the irrigated area.Timothy is winter hardy, tolerant of acid soil conditions (pH <5.5) and is suited for use on low lying peat soils. It withstands some spring flooding and thrives on waterlogged soils but does not tolerate shade, drought, alkalinity or salinity.Timothy is suitable for both hay production and for pasture.

    Timothy is high in energy and low in protein compared to other grasses.

    Alma is a medium maturing timothy, semi-erect, fine stemmed, leafy with a tall seed head.
