Alfalfa plays an important part in Utah's Economy. It is the major forage crop and occupies approximately 40 percent of all irrigated land in the state
During the past most of the alfalfa varietal trials have been conducted in Cache Valley, which is not representative of conditions found throughout Utah. In fact, it would be impossible to select any one location for conducting tests where all insect, disease, and climatic conditions would be represented. In view of this it was felt that an attempt should be made to conduct varietal trials at several locations to permit the selection of varieties which would produce higher yields of quality forage.
