Alfalfa Varieties - Genuity® Roundup Ready® Technology


Pioneer® brand Alfalfa Varieties with Genuity® Roundup Ready® Technology

Alfalfa is no longer a one-size-fits-all crop, when selecting a variety, growers face challenges with variations in moisture, temperature, disease and pest pressure from season to season, field to field and acre to acre. Pioneer has a long tradition of providing growers the broadest package of choices to fit their individual needs and help their bottom line. Adding the Genuity® Roundup (GENRR) Ready® technology to Pioneer® brand alfalfa varieties adds yet another choice to our already extensive lineup.

The GENRR gene enables growers to control grass and broadleaf weeds with a single glyphosate herbicide application, resulting in a simplified, cost-effective weed management program while maintaining crop and feed safety. This weed control program can lead to cleaner, higher-quality hay.
