Alfalfa is a hardy, deep-rooted, long-lived drought resistant legume, belonging to the same family of plants as sweet, red clover and soybeans. Alfalfa is nearly a perfect forage. Alfalfa is very important as a crop for South Dakota. There should be a fair proportion of nearly every South Dakota farm planted to alfalfa.
