Abstract

While exact percentages of protein and fiber in alfalfa vary with soil and weather conditions, stage of growth, and variety, the leaves contain up to 75 percent of the total plant protein. The superior quality of the alfalfa leaves emphasizes the importance of reducing the high leaf loss common in present haying methods.
