Lucerne in north-western Europe

Paul Hargreaves; Lorna L. MacPherson; Jennifer Flockhart

Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) can be fed to dairy, beef cattle and sheep as part of the protein forage component of their ration. Based on Scottish research, this note provides guidance on identifying site and climate combinations where the production of lucerne can be viable in north-western Europe. The experience from research on lucerne gained in these marginal conditions provides a useful guide to production more generally.
