A multipurpose lucerne that is one of the most persistent dormancy 8 varieties on the market

  • Magna 804 has the ability to produce high quality forage under grazing conditions without sacrificing yield performance
  • Solid disease and insect resistance base which provides protection in adverse environments
  • Widely adapted to the major lucerne growing areas of Australia
  • Vigorous seedlings suitable for early winter sowing
  • Rapid regrowth after grazing which is ideal for shorter rotations
  • To maximise growth and quality, graze or cut prior to or at 10% flowering, or when basal regrowth is 5cm
