Alfalfa Food Plot Facts

Alfalfa Food Plot in Bloom

Medicago sativa

Alfalfa seed produces a cool season, perennial legume that is high in minerals, vitamins and protein it is one of the most nutritious crops that can be utilized in any forage situation including wildlife food plots. Planted all over the world, Alfalfa originated near Iran and has been found in one form or the other on nearly all the continents. Alfalfa represents one of the oldest forage crops. Depending upon the cultivar Alfalfa withstands a wide variety of climates and is highly drought resistant through dormancy for as much as two years.

Example Varieties: Alfagraze, Amerigraze, Bulldog 505, Bulldog 805, 403T and 702.

Growing Alfalfa From Seed

Fertilization: A soil test should be obtained prior to planting. Lime to obtain target 6.7 pH or higher. Very sensitive to soil acidity. Nitrogen is normally not applied as Alfalfa produces its own when properly inoculated.

Use: For quality Hay production; Food Plot for Deer, Turkey and Rabbits

Management: Alfalfa is a high management crop requiring monitoring for weevils (alfalfa weevil). Control insects and nematodes with chemicals or preferably organically. Be aware of risk of crown and stem rot. Your extension agent can advise on chemicals approved for your state or alternative organic solutions.

Adaptation: Best on fertile, well drained soils. Deep / Rich soil types work best. Needs pH of +6.5 to grow properly.  Not for use on sandy / well drained soils. Irrigation used in many locations.

Preparation: Best on tilled land broken early and allowed to fallow until planting time. Soil should be packed after seeding for best results or use a culti-packer for planting.
