If alfalfa helps to put food on your table in any way, the Noble Research Institute’s “Alfalfa Breeder’s Toolbox” deserves some of your time.

Though most of the website is devoted to the intricacies of the alfalfa genome and the highly intelligent folks who know how to exploit it, there are resources available for alfalfa growers as well. In fact, you’ll find a whole section designated for producers and packed with useful information and decision-making tools. It’s also a one-stop shop for alfalfa variety trials.

But before beginning your journey through the website, check out the Noble Research Institute’s short video below to gain an appreciation for the role that alfalfa plays in U.S. agriculture and the hard-working scientists who are always looking for the next best thing.
