1. Improving alfalfa forage yield and seed yield through better nutrient, water and/or pest management; 2. Improving persistence of alfalfa stands by lessening biotic or abiotic stresses; 3. Improving alfalfa forage and seed harvesting and storage systems to optimize economic returns; 4. Improving estimates of alfalfa forage quality as an animal feed to increase forage usage in animal feeds; and/or 5. Breeding to address biotic and abiotic stresses that impact alfalfa forage yield and persistence and the production of seed for propagation.
