DLF opens research station for forage, turf, and legumes

DLF recently welcomed forage distribution partners to an inaugural DLF Seed Camp at its new, 30-acre research station in Bangor, Wisconsin.

Located 15 miles from La Crosse, Wisconsin, the sandy soil profile of the site allows for a more natural evaluation of drought tolerance and nitrogen efficiency.

Likewise, its geographical location enables researchers to collect data on seed yield, disease resistance, and cold tolerance, all of which are important characteristics for farmers to consider when selecting seed.

Currently, there are 10 different species of forage grasses, four species of turf grasses, and two species of legumes being evaluated.

In total, there are over 1,700 individual trial plots presently, which includes products DLF currently has on the market and those that are in its research pipeline.

The Seed Camp event showcased DLF’s research infrastructure and introduced attendees to the team developing some of the most genetically-advanced varieties in North America.

“It was a great opportunity to connect our forage distribution partners with the expertise within our company,” says Reid, lead for research and development. “R&D continues to be at the forefront as we look to help our customers grow across North America.”
