    High total yield

    Alto delivers high total yield with excellent year round production.

    With fine leaves and dense tillers, Alto handles treading and set-stocking well. Finer leaved cultivars on wet soils give better soil protection against treading. Alto has high resistance to rust and plant pulling.
