Ameristand 802 Alfalfa Seed - Ameristand 802 is adapted to the Southwest region of the U.S. Ameristand 802 Alfalfa is intended for use in the Southwest region of the U.S.. Ameristand Alfalfa is most commonly used for cattle forage, hay production, wildlife food plots, pasture grazing and stored feed. Ameristand 802 is non-dormant, similar to the FD 8 check. Flower color in the Syn 2 generation is 97% purple, 1% cream, 1% yellow, and 1% variegated.
Ameristand 802 Alfalfa is a synthetic variety with 200 parent clones. Parent clones trace to one population selected for resistance to Phytophthora root rot, anthracnose, bacterial wilt, Fusarium wilt, Verticillium wilt, blue alfalfa aphid, spotted alfalfa aphid, pea aphid, stem nematode, southern root knot nematode, and crown rot. Recurrent phenotypic selection was used. Final selections were made from two and three year old nurseries near Kingsburg, California, based on overall root and crown health.
Ameristand 802 has high resistance to Bacterial wilt, Verticillium wilt, Fusarium wilt, Phytophthora root rot, spotted alfalfa aphid, pea aphid, blue alfalfa aphid, southern root knot nematode; and resistance to anthracnose, stem nematode, Aphanomyces, Resistant levels have not been determined.
Seed increase is limited to one generation each of breeder (Syn 1), foundation (Syn 2), and certified (Syn 3) seed classes. Certified seed may be produced from either breeder or foundation classes, A 1, 3, and 5-year stand life is permitted on fields producing breeder, foundation and certified classes, respectively. Foundation seed production, outside the area of adaptation is limited to single-season production (non-over wintering). Second year of production may be allowed with inspection and approval by breeder prior to second year production. Breeder seed was produced in 1997 near Kingsburg, California under field isolation. ABI will maintain sufficient stocks for the projected life of the variety.
