Dry-land Alfalfa





I am in a country of strictly dry farming. I have a wash or gulch on my

place and would like to know if I could, with success, plant it to

alfalfa without irrigation; soil is sandy loam, no evidences of springy

moisture at all. What kind should I try?



Alfalfa will endure much drouth. What it will do in a particular place

can only be told by trying. Sow Turkestan alfalfa. If the rains come

early so as to wet the land down in September and October, sow the seed

then. The endurance of the plant will depend much upon its having a

chance to root deeply before the drouth comes on.
