Dormancy group 6
AURORA is intermediate in appearance with a growth habit that is moderatly erect than that of similar varieties, with slightly thicker stems. Its flower colour is predominantly purplemauve with a low proportion of variegation.
AURORA was bred to incorporate resistance to the spotted alfalfa aphid, the blue-green aphid, phytophthora root rot and colletotrichum crown rot into a cultivar adapted to the major lucerne growing areas. Spotted alfalfa and blue-green aphids have been shown to cause substantial yield losses in susceptible cultivars.
AURORA is a general purpose variety suited to both haymaking and grazing situations.

Dormancy group 10
CAPTEN10 is a Winter-active variety generally growing right through the winter period.
CAPTEN10 has vigorous seedlings which can be an advantage in early winter sowings. CAPTEN10 also has a longer harvesting season, fast regrowth and high overall production during the early years, so may suit shorter rotations.
