New Q31 is set to become the leading hay and chaffing variety for premium markets. Q31 has a superior leaf retention trait and the highest nutritive value in retained leaf in feed and hay, combined with high yields and excellent quality for hay, chaff, silage and grazing. It demonstrates greater persistence than winter active varieties, when persistence is more important than winter growth. Q31 is ideally suited to irrigation and dryland pastures in cold climate areas. The superior leaf retention trait leads to improved quality lucerne to be sold into premium markets. Q31 was bred for specialist irrigated haymaking, silage or chaff where premium quality is required and where hay cannot be made in winter. Ideally suited to leaders in forage quality.
