Lucerne

Lucerne is commonly known as the king of forages. Lucerne is an extremely valuable feed source with the ability to grow 12 months of the year depending on the winter activity of the variety. Lucerne, with its deep root system, has the ability to stay green throughout the summer months, (acting as a fire break), provides quality green feed when moisture is limited, (when perennial grasses are dormant) and give graziers the ability to sell their stock when they want to. With dormancies ranging from 3 – 10, there is a Lucerne variety to suit your needs.
