Summary

Hi-Gest 660 is the first commercially available low lignin alfalfa variety available for semi-dormant hay producers. Whole plant lignin is 7-10% lower than other varieties. Lower lignin content means no yield drag, no loss of pest resistance. Offers a wider harvest window if harvest maturity is delayed past late bud or one-tenth flower.
