Barenbrug has developed Yellow Jacket Nitrogenerator®, a seed enhancement which makes it possible to place Rhizobium bacteria directly on the seed. This seed saves labour and increases the certainty of optimal crop establishment. Yellow Jacket Nitrogenerator® embeds bacteria in a polymer matrix around the seed. Extra nutrients and preservatives have been added to this coating to increase shelf life.
Apart from choosing lucerne seed with Yellow Jacket Nitrogenerator®, the right soil type, optimal fertilisation and correct harvesting methods will contribute to high forage yields. This crop management manual provides you with the necessary information to get the most out of your Yellow Jacket Nitrogenerator® lucerne seed.
