Kiesselbach, T. A. & Anderson, A. (1925). Hardy alfalfa for Nebraska (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 32)
Comparative tests of varieties and regional strains of Common alfalfa at the Nebraska Experiment Station have clearly indicated that winter hardiness is an important factor to be considered when purchasing alfalfa seed. Much of the seed sold in the United States as proved inferior in this regard for Nebraska conditions. The use of southern-grown domestic seed or seed imported from countries with a much milder climate than that of Nebraska should be avoided in this state. On the other hand, reliance may be placed on the seed of hardy varieties or hardy regional strains of Common alfalfa grown in Nebraska or in other northern and western states.
