Have you seen the big rolls a lot of farmers have in their fields? Covered in plastic or left bare, many of those rolls are made from ALFALFA—one of the most useful and widely grown hay crops in the world.
It might look cool in the movies, but I’d probably refrain from eating ALFALFA hay—though the crop has been used as an herbal medicine for more than 1500 years (aka: a LONG time).
ALFALFA is a great Alberta crop. Not only is it resistant to drought (extended periods of time without rain/moisture), when it’s planted with other grasses, it helps prevent soil erosion.
