Plant at 1/4″ depth. An ideal soil bed is moist, fertile and firm. Alfalfa prefers crumbly silt loam to sandy loam textures but alfalfa will grow well on most deep, well-drained soils with adequate internal and surface drainage. Plant at least 1/2″ depth on sandy soils.
Alfalfa may be planted in the spring or early fall. Apply lime and fertilizer as needed.
Your pH levels should be 6.5-7.0. Alfalfa will die if the soil is saturated for an extended period
For maximum yields, it is important to have 20-30 plants per square foot during the seedling year for protection against weed competition.
Do not harvest alfalfa seeded in late summer/early fall until the following spring.
Allow new seedlings to start to bloom before the first harvest.
Cut alfalfa three-four times a year when stand is 25% flowered.
