The Alfalfa Council has just released its 2000-01 fall dormancy and pest- resistance ratings for alfalfa varieties.

Producers who raise alfalfa can use these ratings to select varieties that are right for their individual growing area. The booklet contains ratings for 230 alfalfa varieties. Ratings were compiled from the Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies and the National Alfalfa Variety Review Board Report.

Copies cost 50 cents each. To request your copy, call the Alfalfa Council at (816) 891-0579, or visit the Council’s Web site at: www.alfalfa.org
