Once again, Hay & Forage Grower is publishing the National Alfalfa & Forage Alliance annual alfalfa variety guide – the 2011 edition of the Winter Survival, Fall Dormancy & Pest Resistance Ratings for Alfalfa Varieties leaflet – in its November issue.

Major breeding companies have submitted pure alfalfa varieties, listed by fall dormancy, to help growers make their seed-buying decisions. These proprietary varieties have been approved by the National Alfalfa and Miscellaneous Legumes Variety Review Board (NAVRB) and are eligible for certification by seed certifying agencies.

The eight-page booklet provides pest resistance ratings for each alfalfa. The information comes from the Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies and NAVRB.
