Peltier, George L. and Tysdal, H.M. (1930) The relative susceptibility of alfalfas to wilt and cold (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 52)
The final solution of the alfalfa-wilt problem in Nebraska probably lies in the development of resistant sorts that are winterhardy as well as productive. The relative susceptibility to wilt of 40 lots from Turkestan, 10 from France, 6 of Grimm from as many states, and 16 domestic alfalfas are reported on at this time, together with hardiness tests of a few well-known varieties and strains and the more recent introductions from Turkestan and France.
