Abstract or Summary
  • Alfalfa is capable of producing high yields of forage when grown on deep, well-drained soils. Good management practices are essential if optimum fertilizer responses are to be realized. These practices include use of recommended varieties, selection of adapted soils, weed control, disease and insect control, good seedbed preparation, proper inoculation and seeding methods, and timely harvest. Alfalfa removes substantial amounts of mineral nutrients. Field experiments have shown that under different conditions in western Oregon, alfalfa has responded to phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, boron, and lime. The need for nutrients other than sulfur can be determined with a soil test. With borderline test values, retest every year. Follow recommended soil sampling procedures to estimate fertilizer needs. The Oregon State University Extension Service agent in your county can provide you with soil sampling instructions, soil sample bags, and information sheets.
