Alexis has outstanding winter hardiness and resistance to frost. It also has excellent disease resistance to Anthracnose and Verticilium. Alexis can easily produce healthy crops for four years or longer.
High dry matter yields with good protein content
On the French “Liste A”, which rates all top lucerne varieties, Alexis is one of the leading varieties for dry matter yield (16.9 mton dry matter/hectare). This feature is still the most important aspect for all farmers in Europe. In addition, the high and stable protein content (19-20%) in its silage gives quality nutrition for cattle.
Very suitable for use in regions with short crop rotation cycles
Alexis was selected for its resistance to nematodes. Which has resulted in an excellent resistance score (>85%). Alexis can therefore be used in short crop rotation cycles whereas other varieties will usually show poor establishment.
