Questions on Vernal Alfalfa Seed 50lb

- Q: is this alfalfa durable enough once seeded and growing to survive approx. two to three field floods a year from creek overflow. I don't want to spend the money to seed a field that is flooded several times a year if this seed will not survive after it take hold. thanks for any info you can give

- A: Hello Bill,
This is what the manufacturer had to say:
No alfalfa no matter how much you pay for it can withstand long term water issues. When roots soak in water over 5-7 days, they ingest the bacteria in the ground and the roots start their decay. The length of exposure to water, tempature and age of the plant determine the severity of the problem. Vernal alfalfa will withstand this environment as well as other varieties- short term flooding (2-3 days) will have a minimal effect, anything longer and the situation changes quickly.
