Barricade SLT is an alfalfa variety well suited to areas with increased salinity pressures. Selected from parents that endured repeated irrigation under a 100mM NaCl solution in the greenhouse, and endured field soils with >8 EC, Barricade SLT has demonstrated improved germination under saline conditions as well as improved forage production. This increased saline tolerance, when combined with high yield potential and an excellent disease and pest resistance package, gives Barricade SLT excellent overall performance and hardiness.
