Discover the Stamina® range and NEW Torrens GT8 and Warrego GT6 grazing tolerant lucerne.
Stamina grazing tolerant lucerne - Premium quality hay and TRUE grazing tolerance. The Stamina range of modern lucernes provide a higher return on investment (especially after 3 years) in comparison to older cultivars such as Aurora.
Graph shows the 2012 sown dryland grazing tolerance trial at year 2, 3 and 8. This trial was continuously grazed for six months at 50 sheep per hectare equivalent from January 2014 through to June 2014, and repeated again from January 2015 until June 2015. All cultivars were trailed under the internationally recognised Standard Test Protocol for grazing tolerant lucerne.

NEW Torrens GT8 grazing tolerant lucerne (of the Stamina range)
Torrens GT8 had higher ground cover in years 2 and 3 compared to all dormancy 7-10 varieties and some dormancy 6 varieties. Torrens GT8 also maintained 40% ground cover after 8 years of hard grazing.
Torrens GT8 grazing tolerant lucerne: Grazing tolerance and winter activity - the ultimate combination.
Torrens GT8 is the first grazing tolerant, highly winter active lucerne to be released to the Australian market that has been trialled under the Internationally recognised Standard Test Protical for grazing tolerant lucerne.
By combining winter activity and grazing tolerance, Torrens GT8 provides flexibility not previously available. The low crown height offers protection to the plant from heavy grazing, high tyre traffic or hoof damage.
Stamina GT5 grazing tolerant lucerne
Stamina GT5 grazing tolerant lucerne: The ultimate choice for grazing tolerant lucerne
Stamina GT5 is a high performing lucerne variety that will produce quality hay and grazing opportunities for seven to ten years. It is a true grazing tolerant lucerne which has been trialled over many years under the internationally recognised Standard Test Protocol for grazing tolerant lucernes. Stamina GT5 lucerne is the ultimate choice where a stand is required for prolonged periods of set-stocking.
Warrego GT6 grazing tolerant lucerne
In comparison to older cultivars such as Aurora and after all cultivars were trialled under the
internationally recognised Standard Test Protocol for grazing tolerant lucerne, it was evident that:
Ultimately, the Stamina range of TRUE grazing tolerant lucernes featuring NEW Warrego GT6, Torrens GT8 and Stamina GT5 and are an ideal choice for farmers seeking a long term lucerne solution with a higher return on investment, compared to cultivars which decline significantly in ground cover after 2-3 years.
Warrego GT6 grazing tolerant lucerne: Improved persistance with Warrego GT6, the upgraded replacement to Stamina GT6
Trialled and tested over multiple environments and conditions, Warrego GT6 (of the Stamina range), is a monumental step up in grazing tolerance and persistence compared to older dormancy 6 varieties. Bred to persist for prolonged periods of set stocking, Warrego GT6 provides growers with grazing flexibility, high quality hay, persistence similar to a dormancy 5 and winter activity of a 6.
