Alfalfa is ideal for a long-term green forage crop of 2–6 years. It roots down very deep and loosens up compacted soils. It also balances soil moisture levels since its roots go deep and the green tops create a ground cover. What is more, the roots of this legume crop form nitrogen-fixing nodules which make ideal conditions for future crops. The seeds are suitable for fresh sprouts.

Sow from May to August by broadcasting. Rake and pack soil slightly.
