Barenbrug proudly presents a world class variety from its successful lucerne breeding
program: Artémis. This variety entered the french variety list in 2010 as the variety with the
highest yield. Besides, Artémis turns out to be a very persistent crop with outstanding
resistance to nematodes and diseases. Regarding early cutting and feed quality, Artémis can
be compared with Sanditi.
Artemis produces a very strong crop. Because of an outstanding winter hardiness its persistency is very high. Due to its deep rooting system it improves the soil structure and grows very well under dry circumstances. For these reasons Artemis can be used for many years, without any problems.
As nematodes and diseases are an issue in lucerne growing, Artémis is a perfect choice because of its high resistance. At the French recommended list it is even denominated as the variety with the highest resistance to nematodes and other diseases (like Anthracnose and Verticilium).
