2004 Buy Pure Alfalfa

If you want the “Real Thing,” you probably have to pay for it, whether it's a Coke or a pure alfalfa variety.

But alfalfa marketers, like the soft-drink industry, offer consumers a multitude of options, usually at less cost than the real thing.

Are alfalfa brands or blends — usually tempting alternatives to the higher-priced alfalfa varieties — safe to buy?

It depends, says Dan Undersander, University of Wisconsin extension forage specialist. And that's the trouble.

“You basically don't have any idea what you're getting. It may be very good material or it may be floor sweepings. Brands and blends can change from year to year while varieties remain constant,” he says.

A brand is a non-certifiable lot of seed that can be a blend, or mixture, of several varieties. Or it could be a single variety. “There are no requirements to maintain genetic continuity of either a blend or a brand,” he adds.

Universities won't test brands or blends for that reason. “We would run into too many situations where I would get the seed, plant it and the next year when I have data, what's being sold is a different germplasm. I wouldn't want to put out any data regarding it because there is no assurance that it is the same stuff I planted the previous year.”

Known varieties, on the other hand, are “made certifiable.” Pure alfalfas are grown and inspected for certification by one of three certification entities: the National Alfalfa Variety Review Board, the U.S. Plant Variety Protection Office or a state crop improvement association.

“There are two parts to certification: One is that it is the variety it is stated to be, with no contaminants in it. The other is that it is certified as free of certain weeds.”

Sometimes, Undersander adds, alfalfa companies make the seed certifiable but don't actually certify it state by state. That way they can legally sell it under the variety name and also mix lots of the same variety from seed growers from other states.

“If you buy varieties, you get top genetics and well-known germplasm,” he advises. “Blends and brands are cheaper, but you're taking the risk in that it may be good material or it may not.”

The following pages list pure alfalfa varieties — with pertinent disease and insect information — that companies are actively marketing. New alfalfas for the 2004 planting season are highlighted in green. Information was gathered with help from the University of Wisconsin, alfalfa breeders and the National Alfalfa Alliance.
