S&W Seed Company has commercially launched its newly certified alfalfa variety, SW 8421S, the world's only Group 8 dormancy salt tolerant alfalfa. Dormancy relates to the length of the growing season and this variety was developed for important hay-growing areas within California, Arizona and Latin America.
"Producing higher hay tonnage is the key to putting more money in the farmers' pockets. SW 8421S helps farmers grow high quality hay with low quality ground or water, and is also superior for ground or water that doesn't have salt. We expect it will sell well in the many geographical areas where Group 8 dormancy is the norm," said CEO Mark Grewal.
