Abstract:
Alfa-alfa (Medicago sativa L.) is one of the most important temperate legume species, used to lessen the lack of forage during the critical fall-winter period in Changthang Eastern Ladakh, India. However, its utilization has been restricted mainly because of its lack of persistence in theses high altitude region. This study evaluates the fresh herbage yield and persistence of alfalfa in three physiographic regions of eastern Ladakh, in cluster I, cluster II and cluster III. Experiments were carried out for five year growing seasons and results were compared. The Cluster I and Cluster III villages were more adequate for alfalfa forage production, enabling better yield and persistence.
