Interpretive Summary: With growing interest in alternative legumes for uses beyond hay, farmers are requesting options to meet their needs. This article explains two efforts in which the U.S. Dairy Forage Research Center is involved. The two efforts include: 1) kura clover seed production so producers have access to kura clover seed, and 2) winter annual legume cover crops for organic production systems.
