2415. Hanna, M.R., G.C. Kozub, and S. Smoliak. 1977. Forage production of sanfoin and alfalfa on dryland in mixed- and alternate-row seedings with three grasses.. Canadian J. Plant Sci. 57:61-70.
Alfalfa-grass yielded better than sanfoin grass. Sanfoin is a suitable alternative to alfalfa in parts of the prairie region, but particular attention must be paid to the selection of companion species if it is to be grown in association with a grass. Russian wild rye was the most productive companion in this study. Mixed row seedings were higher for all combinations except sanfoin-pubescent wheatgrass in alternate rows. Sanfoin does not causse bloat, but stands are generally shorter-lived than alfalfa. Pure stands of sanfoin may yield the most, but grasses will extend the life of the stand.
