Ameristand 480 HVX RR

First genetically enhanced alfalfa trait developed to maximize quality by reducing lignin.


Lignin amounts in Ameristand 480 HVX RR have been found to be reduced by 12% – 20% when compared to conventional alfalfas at the same stage of maturity. Due to this new technology, farmers can maintain a normal harvest schedule and obtain a higher quality or chose to delay harvest for up to 7 days for a higher yield potential without sacrificing quality. This variety has been found to have a higher RFQ value and increased digestibility when compared to conventional varieties.

  • Fall dormancy of 4.0
  • Winterhardiness of 2.2
