Outstanding health profile with high resistance against anthracnose and verticillium
With the changing climate, we have to be aware of the health profile from lucerne. This awareness results in very good results from our breeding station in France. Barmelie shows an outstanding health profile. This variety has a very high resistance against anthracnose and verticillium. That gives a good persistency.

Excellent frost tolerance
Persistence has not only to do with health. Also the winterhardiness is a topic which is important for the long livingness of a variety. Barmelie shows an excellent frost tolerance. This variety can be used in oceanic and continental areas.
