Idaho Alfalfa Seed Production

In the spring of 2017 the Idaho Alfalfa and Clover Seed Commission with cooperation from the Idaho Alfalfa Seed Growers Association commissioned the making of a video that would promote and educate the public of how alfalfa seed is produced. The message that the commission and association wanted to convey is the good stewardship practices used, and the need for the use of pesticides to produce high quality alfalfa seed for our customers. Over the summer of 2017 the video was produced with the help of local growers including growers that grow for Allied Seed LLC. The result is the video in the link below. Please take a look. We hope you enjoy it.
