Yield potential, pest resistance and seed price should be considered when selecting alfalfa varieties in Nebraska.
The most important variety decision for many farms and ranches is the selection of alfalfa. The choice of alfalfa variety affects production for three to 10 or more years, whereas varieties of annual crops can be changed every year.
Varieties that have been tested with commercial seed since 1991 for two or more years at locations in Nebraska and marketed in the state are shown in this 2001 extension circular revision.
