Also known as "lucerne", non-GMO alfalfa is a year-round cover crop, widely grown for its nitrogen-replenishing benefits and fertile, all-natural springtime "green compost" mulch. An ancient old-world foraging heirloom, open-pollinated alfalfa seeds are in a renaissance as an essential annual cover crop, heirloom sprouting seed, and non-GMO microgreens variety. Alfalfa seeds are open-pollinated heirlooms quick to mature as a 24-36" tall foraging cover crop often grown, harvested, and baled just like wheat. Wholesale seed packets and bulk seeds. ~12,500 seeds/oz.

About Alfalfa Cover Crop Garden Seeds

Non-GMO alfalfa seeds are a cool-hardy cover crop intended to be broadcasted directly in early fall for spring tilling, but can be sown in spring as a summer garden companion plant. For more traditional garden harvests or perennial sowing, plant 2-3 alfalfa cover crop seeds ½” deep and 2-3” apart in average, loamy, and well-drained garden soil in full sun. Open-pollinated alfalfa is a traditional cover crop thriving in difficult and depleted soils. Alfalfa seeds germinate in 7-14 days with no thinning necessary. Heirloom Medicago sativa is a tenacious cool-season cover crop annual with no serious pests or diseases. When seeded as a cover crop, mow non-GMO alfalfa before it goes to seed (about when 50% of crop has bloomed), mulching annual alfalfa back into garden soil as "green manure" before planting new seasonal crop. Springtime reseeding of alfalfa will help minimize weeds in the garden and grow space. Non-GMO alfalfa cover crop seed is popularly interseeded as an effective companion plant, insectary, and as nutritiously dense source of animal fodder.

Alfalfa Benefits

Alfalfa is one of the oldest foraging livestock crops cultivated, having been domesticated throughout most of the world for more than 2,000 years. Like other cover crop legumes, non-GMO heirloom alfalfa is populaly grown for its ability to repair damaged soils, prepare uncultivated spaces, loosen soil, minimize weeds, and convert nitrogen from the atmosphere back into the soil. Annual alfalfa is foremost grown foraging crop used to sustain commercial dairy cows, steer, horses, goats, sheep, and rabbits for its boosted protein content, digestible fibers, and reliable yields. Non-GMO alfalfa is currently in its renaissance as a popular grow for human food as a culinary microgreen and sprout used in salads, sandwiches, soups, and juices.
