Medicago sativa Perennial legume cover crop.

Low desert areas of the West, San Joaquin Valley in California and Southern Texas and Gulf coast states. Zones 9-11. Popular hay plant great for cover cropping on fertile soils (alfalfas do not like acidic soils) with fair to good drainage.

Excellent beneficial insect habitat. Can fix 200 lb Nitrogen/acre if given adequate Phosphorus, Calcium, and Sulfur. Provides great bee forage, yields up to 10 tons of organic matter per acre, and brings subsurface minerals to the surface. Suitable for 3-5 year rotations. Requires summer irrigation and produce the most growth in warm weather. Grows 18"-24". Plant according to your zone, following the instructions in Product Use Instructions. Plant shallowly in early fall or spring at 0.5-1 lb/1000 sq ft or 25 lb/acre.

NOTE to Certified Organic Growers: This is conventional seed, but all seeds are coated with Nitro-Coat Organic, which is an OMRI listed coating. This coating uses all organic ingredients: the proper rhizobacteria, a Calcium Carbonate coating that is naturally water absorbing to speed seed germination, and an OMRI listed organic adhesive.
