Field trials of birdsfoot trefoil

This research summary shares results from two years of trials with birdsfoot trefoil. Emergence and plant growth was monitored fives times over two growing seasons, and hay samples were analyzed for feed quality.

The summary outlines:

  • How demonstrations were laid out and monitored
  • How yield and quality compared with alfalfa
  • Specific producer experiences

The summary was developed during a project with ranchers in the Peace region to identify nutrient or cropping management practices that might enhance the resilience of forage production to climate change extremes.
