L91 Lucerne

L91 the “Easy Grow” winter active lucerne, bred by Pasture Genetics. L91 replaces L90, as the leading winter active variety for dryland grazing of cattle and sheep in low to medium rainfall areas.

L91 has shown superior leaf retention and finer stems, than other winter active varieties. Strong growth into late autumn and winter maximises year round production and fills feed gaps. L91 has high resistance to all Alfalfa aphids, high resistance to Colletotrichum Crown Rot and fusarium Wilt combined with high resistance to Phytophthora Root Rot.

This results in better persistence, fast recovery after grazing or cutting. L91 exhibits exceptional field appearance that is found lacking in many other winter active varieties. Genetically different, genetically better, L91 sets a new standard for highly winter active lucerne in Australia.
