Public and commercial breeding programs produce new alfalfa cultivars for the market every year. Selecting the proper cultivar for your situation is no easy task, and you should have yield information from several South Dakota locations to make a proper choice. From the SDSU Alfalfa Cultivar Yield Tests you can compare the critical forage production characteristics-yield, winterhardiness, and disease resistance-for available cultivars and experimental lines at several locations in South Dakota.
