These publications detail alfalfa yield trial data for single harvest, single year, and multi-year summaries for each year. Usually, both conventional and Roundup-Ready (RR) lines are tested. Yield trials are conducted in five regions in California: the Intermountain area, the Sacramento Valley, the Westside Research Station, the San Joaquin Valley, and the Low Desert (see image above).
