Big Wheel Alfalfa (W/Apron Xl)

Big Wheel Alfalfa (w/Apron® XL) is a high yielding traffic tolerant alfalfa exhibiting higher yields and persistence over other traditional traffic tolerant varieties.
Big Wheel still had a 90% stand after 2 years of continuous sheep/cattle grazing and preformed exceptionally well in 18 combined university trials in the corn belt and northeast averaging 107% over the trail mean.
Big Wheel features tall, showy plants and a dense leafy canopy with medium dark green foliage with an excellent disease rating package.
A great variety for grazers and haymakers seeking a high quality forage! (Apron XL is NOT approved for Organic use)

Big Wheel is pre-inoculated & coated with Apron® XL for improved establishment and growth.
(Apron XL is NOT approved for Organic use!)
Inoculation is recommended when planting legumes.
*Details on Seed Coatings, Inoculations & the OMRI downloadable certificates on our Reference Page.

Establishment

Plant at 1/4″ depth. An ideal soil bed is moist, fertile and firm. Alfalfa prefers crumbly silt loam to sandy loam textures but alfalfa will grow well on most deep, well-drained soils with adequate internal and surface drainage. Plant at least 1/2″ depth on sandy soils.
Alfalfa may be planted in the spring or early fall. Apply lime and fertilizer as needed.
Your pH levels should be 6.5-7.0.Alfalfa will die if the soil is saturated for an extended period

Management

For maximum yields, it is important to have 20-30 plants per square foot during the seedling year for protection against weed competition.
Do not harvest alfalfa seeded in late summer/early fall until the following spring.
Allow new seedlings to start to bloom before the first harvest.
Cut alfalfa three-four times a year when stand is 25% flowered.

Guarantee

OUR PROMISE

A money-back guarantee, also known as a satisfaction guarantee, is essentially a simple guarantee that, if a buyer is not satisfied with a product or service, a refund will be made.
The 18th century entrepreneur Josiah Wedgwood pioneered many of the marketing strategies used today, including the satisfaction-or-money-back guarantee on the entire range of his pottery products. He took advantage of his guarantee offer to send his products to rich clientele across Europe unsolicited. The money-back guarantee was also a major tool of early U.S. mail order sales pioneers in the United States such as Richard Sears and Powel Crosley Jr. to win the confidence of consumers.
