Alfalfa seed is an important source of income on many central and western South Dakota farms. The market for this seed is largely in the northern half of the ·United States where farmers have learned that it is extremely important to know where the alfalfa seed was grown that is offered for sale. A brief survey of all recent alfalfa bulletins and information published by all northern Agricultural Expe1iment Stations should convince every South Dakota alfalfa seed grower that he has a good market for his alfalfa seed in these states for years to come if he will but produce dodder-free seed of high quality and send it to them in sealed bags, guaranteed as to variety and origin.
