M. R. HANNA Legumes Specialist The Canadian sainfoin variety Melrose has been grown very successful by seed producers during the past three seasons. As a result of the increased availability and reduced price of more farmers and ranchers are expected to consider the possibilities of growing Melrose for forage on dry and irrigated land. Work at the Lethbridge Research Station and other research centres in Canada and the United States has shown that sainfoin has ad- vantages as well as some disadvantages when com- pared with other forage particularly alfalfa. Certain characteristics of sainfoin be kept mind by those contemplating growing this crop. Sainfoin does not cause bloat so it can be grazed safely by livestock. It is highly palatable and produces an excellent rate of gain. One of its main draw- backs is that it is relative- ly short lived under usually providing good yields for only three or four years. Although sainfoin is somewhat more persistent in dryland hay and pasture it recovers more slowly after cutting and yields less than alfalfa as a hay crop in areas where alfalfa gives two cuttings. Sainfoin fits well into a combined hay pasture giving a good first cutting for hay and providing grazing in late summer and fall. Sainfoin-grass mixtures generally do not give as high forage yields as sain- foin but grasses prolong the productivity of stands and reduce invasion by weeds. In trials conducted on .dryland at the Lethbridge Research Station over a five year sainfoin combined well with bunchgrasses such as crested wheatgrass and Russian wildrye but not with creeping rooted species such as bromegrass and pubescent wheatgrass. In a four year test on irrigated mixtures with timothy or creeping red fescue were the most productive sainfoin grass combinations. Sainfoin with pubescent wheatgrass also yielded well in contrast to the results ob- tained on Combinations with orchardgrass and bronvegrass were un- with the sain- foin contributing too low a proportion of the total yield of such mixtures. Sainfoin is immune to the alfalfa weevil and is relatively free of other insect or disease although crown and root rots may be responsible in part for the short life of irrigated stands. The seeds of sainfoin are' so there are fewer seeds per pound than for most other forage legumes and grasses. This means that seeding rates of as much as 20 pounds per acre are required on dryland and 40 pounds on irrigated land. Attempts to skimp on seeding rates usually result in poor stands. Further information is contained in the Canada Department of Agriculture publication Sainfoin for Western which is available from district agriculturists or the research station at Lethbridge.
