Summer Select

La Crosse Seed’s Summer Select™ family of summer annual products delivers innovative forage seed options to producers. We have partnered with top breeders to acquire what we believe to be the best genetics and most versatile summer annual portfolio available. The Summer Select lineup features products with advantages including greater digestibility, disease resistance, standability, and more.

Many varieties within the Summer Select portfolio include the BMR6 brown mid-rib trait, which denotes improved digestibility and higher energy forage. Also within the lineup are varieties that include the brachytic dwarf trait, which assures greater leaf-to-stem ratio and improved standability.
