Alfalfa is a very high yielding perennial forage crop that is deep rooted and does best on well-drained land. Largest yield is obtained when pH is 6.5 or higher. Alfalfa is best suited as stored feed and should be cut at the very first flower stage to obtain highest quality. It can be grown along or in mixtures with grasses.
