Alfalfa Seeds - Allstar (Medicago sativa) Organic Allstar Alfalfa Sprouting Legume



Alfalfa is a cool-season perennial commonly grown for feeding livestock or as a cover crop, soil improvement, and conditioner.

Alfalfa is also a highly nutritious and natural source of nitrogen and is an extremely popular sprouting legume

For Sprouting:

  1. Place alfalfa seeds in a quart jar or other sprouting container.
  2. Add ¼-½ cup cool water, cover with a sprouting screen or mesh sprouting lid.
  3. Soak for 8 hours or overnight.
  4. Drain all water off the alfalfa seeds.
  5. Invert the jar over a bowl at an angle so that the seeds will drain and air will be able to circulate


 Alfalfa  provides many environmental benefits including:

  1. it is a rich habitat for wildlife
  2. provides an insectary for diverse beneficial insects
  3.  improves soil characteristics
  4. fixes atmospheric nitrogen
  5. traps sediments and takes up nitrate pollutants
  6. mitigates water and air pollution
  7. provides aesthetically pleasing open spaces.
  8. alfalfa's extensive root system nourishes both plants and soil, and is ideal for providing erosion control.  

 For Soil Improvement and Insect Benefits: 

  • Full sun.
  • Sow seeds any time after the last frost in spring, and a month before the first frost in autumn.
  • Since alfalfa roots quickly, it doesn’t require deep planting—only about 1/2 in (1 cm.) deep. Sprinkle the seeds evenly onto the soil and cover lightly with dirt
  • Water seedlings as soon as they germinate. 
  • You should begin to see sprouts within seven to ten days. Once seedlings have reached about 6 to 12 in (15-31 cm.), thin them as needed to avoid overcrowding issues.
  • alfalfa produces high yields. It is also resistant to Anthracnose, aphanomyces root rot, bacterial wilt, fusarium wilt, phytophthora root rot and verticillium wilt.
  • Seed Count: 1/2 gr
