Historically, forage legume improvement has received minimal attention relative to other major crops. This has limited the availability of well-adapted and studied cultivars for dryland environments. Adaptation of the Australian ley farming system to Montana is showing promise with annual medics. Also, cereal-pulse rotations are being successfully used in more areas. Over twenty potential fallow-replacing cover crops are being evaluated across Montana. The Indianhead lentil, developed in Saskatchewan as a cover crop, is also showing promise.
