					        Magnum VI-Wet is the third generation of branch root alfalfas.
        Magnum VI-Wet combine’s the branch rooted feature along with a high
      level of resistance to the pathogens that inhabit wet soils including
     Aphanomyces root rot (Race 2). Its root system has been genetically
        designed with a greater degree of the branched rooted trait. This trait
       helps keep more of the root system above the water table and better
  secures the plant in the ground when freezing and thawing can cause heaving.
    The branch-rooted trait will adjust as moisture stresses intensify. Magnum
     VI-Wet branch root alfalfa allows alfalfa to be more persistent and
      productive in areas not usually considered for hay production.
