2017-143: Evaluation of forage Galega as a new forage legume in pure and grass-legume mixed stands in Saskatchewan
Researcher: Bill Biligetu
Galega Is a winter hardy legume cultivated in northern Ontario and is comparable to alfalfa. It grows earlier in the spring and matures faster. However, limited information is available on its persistence in Western Canada, its alkaloid levels, and bloat incidence (though what is available indicates that is lower than alfalfa). This project will compare galega to alfalfa, sainfoin and cicer milkvetch in Melfort, Swift Current, and Saskatoon.
Results: Waiting for research results.
