Stands for High Leaf Ratio. Contains the best and latest orchardgrass varieties from Barenbrug’s breeding program. The varieties have been selected for high leaf to stem ratio. This means more leaves for improved digestibility and energy, and less stems that reduce the feed quality and palatability of the forage. Barenbrug breeders are continuously selecting for disease tolerance and HLR Orchardgrass is resistant to rust and other leaf diseases. The intermediate to late heading varieties in HLR are ideal for planting with alfalfa.
