Prolific II is a 3rd generation alfalfa genetically designed with greater degree of branch root trait. It combines high resistance to pathogens that inhabit wet soils. Prolific II’s root system is above the water table, thus securing the plant when freezing and thawing occurs. Its branch-rooted trait will adjust as moisture stresses intensify. Prolific II is more persistent and productive in areas not considered for hay production.
