Medicago Sativa

Lucerne is a perennial legume with a taproot penetrating deep into the soil profile, gathering nutrients and water. 

  • Very good drought tolerance.  

  • Suitable for low rainfall areas.  

  • Does not perform well in clay-based soils.

  • Lucerne produces quality feed and excellent quality forage.

Lucerne can be sown as a monocultural crop or be included in a pasture with other legumes.  In a pasture, it needs to flower once or twice a year to build up root reserves.  Lucerne will increase protein levels in the pasture.  
Sow lucerne as a monoculture or in a mix for grazing and or hay/silage.
