Alfalfa Seed (Medicago sativa)

Alfalfa is a cool season perennial legume living from three to twelve years, depending on variety and climate. It resembles clover with clusters of small purple flowers.

The plant grows to a height of up to 1 metre (3 ft.), and has a deep root system sometimes stretching to 4.5 metres (15 ft). This makes it very resilient, especially to droughts. It has a tetraploid genome. The plant exhibits auto toxicity, which means that it is difficult for alfalfa seed to grow in existing stands of alfalfa. Therefore, it is recommended that alfalfa fields be rotated with other species (for example, corn or wheat) before reseeding.

Planting Alfalfa Seed

Rate: 20 - 25 lbs. per acre.
Depth: 1/4 to 1/2 Inch
Adaptation: Needs deep, fertile, well-drained soils. Soil pH of 6.5 or above.
Management: Pest problems occasionally occur when crown or stem rot is a problem.

Use insecticides in spring to guard against insects such as, alfalfa weevil, leafhoppers and nematodes.

    Product I ordered came in a timely manner, undamaged. Package did not indicate the alfalfa seeds I ordered were All Natural and Non-GMO. To find out how well these seeds germinate, will take time for me.

    Quit spamming my email

    Although the delivery was quick and trouble free, you keep sending me multiple emails begging for a review, and I haven’t even had a chance to find out how much of this seed will germinate and grow. I’m taking two stars off for that.
