Alfalfa is a vigorous and productive crop. Like all farm crops, however, alfalfa is subject to stand injury and yield loss from disease, insect injury and nutrient deficiencies. Prompt and accurate diagnosis of a problem can allow early treatment to modify or correct the situation before yields are seriously affected or stands are lost.
The purpose of the Alfalfa Analyst is to provide an identification guide to alfalfa diseases, nutrient deficiency symptoms and problem insects. Please use it to help identify any alfalfa problems you may have. Then secure specific up-to-date control recommendations from your local, county or state agricultural authority.
