Fifteen to 20 new alfalfa cultivars are released annually through public and commercial breeding programs. To select a cultivar for your operation, you will need information on forage yield, winterhardiness, and disease resistance. The alfalfa cultivar yield test of the Plant Science Department at SDSU determines relative forage production characteristics for available cultivars and experimental lines at several locations in South Dakota.
