Description:
In Wyoming, alfalfa is grown primarily for hay under irrigation, but it also is grown on dryland and for pasture. Alfalfa is a versatile crop that can be rotated with other crops and grown on non-cropland meadows. Alfalfa Establishment Alternatives is a 10-page bulletin that describes alternatives to traditional alfalfa establishment on cropland and non-cropland sites. Good stands are essential to realize alfalfa's potential profitability. Stand failures are more costly than other crops because of out-of-pocket re-establishment costs and forage productions lost when less-than-optimum stands are maintained. The authors explain, "The information we are presenting is intended to facilitate planning and to improve chances for successful alfalfa seeding.
