Shoshone Sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia) the herbage is highly nutritious. Compared with alfalfa, forage dry-matter yields of sainfoin are about 20 percent lower under dryland conditions, and may be 30 percent or more lower in irrigated areas. Sainfoin is a very early-growing legume, and it may tolerate light grazing during the bud. It produces very palatable hay or grazing, and compared to alfalfa, forage quality declines less rapidly as the plant matures. However, in almost all areas where alfalfa is well-adapted, sainfoin does not yield as well. It does begin spring growth very fast, frequently out-yielding alfalfa at first harvest, but sainfoin regrows very slowly. Hybner spoke at the Fremont Farm and Ranch Days in Riverton on Feb. 13 about different grass and forage varieties producers can use for their operations. Sainfoin. A variety of non-bloat legume producers can grow is sainfoin. For small acreage producers, it is good forage for horses and produces slightly lower tonnage amounts than alfalfa.

Full-bloom stage. Protein quality for sainfoin is around 68 compared to 71 for alfalfa out of a possible score of for an “ideal protein” (Kaldy et al ). Sainfoin is also not susceptible to alfalfa Size: KB.

There are not many farmers currently growing sainfoin or feeding their animals with this forage crop, but the farmers who are interested in using sainfoin use it File Size: KB. Plants tend to produce flowers and seeds starting from the bottom of the flower spike, working upward.

The seed itself is large–kidney-shaped and greenish-brown–for a perennial forage legume. Where does sainfoin grow best.

Well-drained, dry sites not subject to flooding at the root zone are ideal for growing sainfoin. Onobrychis viciifolia (sainfoin) is a forage legume crop with many positive agronomic, environmental, nutritional and nutraceutical attributes. Farmers also benefit from its drought tolerance in areas of low rainfall and light free draining soil, mainly due to its deep taproot.

Why Sainfoin is known as 'holy hay'. Sainfoin as a hay and forage crop can be planted in the spring or fall. Seeding depth should be between and inches.

Establishment is improved when seeds are inoculated. Jeff Russell and Matthew Landis have been growing sainfoin on their newly purchased Idaho ranch for three years. They sit at 6, feet elevation and with that comes a shortened growing season.

Originally they planted it to “amend the soil and help with some of the compaction in the areas that had been heavily farmed,” Russell said. Sainfoin at mid-bloom retains its leaves and nutrient content better than other forage legumes, and first-cut yields of sainfoin are consistently higher than those of alfalfa.

Sainfoin is bloat-free due to its levels of condensed tannins, however it is highly palatable to livestock and wildlife. Regrowth was reported for three cuts taken at the Saskatoon site in In the Nova+Grazeland plots, a quarter of the forage came from sainfoin at the first cut, but only about 10 per cent of the forage was from sainfoin at the second and third cuts.

This means that the alfalfa grew back faster than the sainfoin. Sainfoin grows from a root crown on a deeply penetrating tap root early in the spring and flowers one to two weeks earlier than alfalfa, which makes it an early season flowering species for pollinator habitat plantings. The stem is hollow, reddish-brown with straight hairs, andgrows to.

On account of its deep root system, however, it is extremely resistant to drought and makes a surprisingly good stand when most other forage plants would suffer severely from lack of moisture. Once established, it stands the winters of the Ottawa valley fairly well.

Habits of growth: It is sometimes difficult to obtain a good stand of Sainfoin. Unlike other legumes, sainfoin carries no bloat risk when used as primary forage for grazing animals. It’s very drought tolerant and can be grown without irrigation in areas receiving at 5/5(1).

The grasses benefit from the nitrate exuded by the Rhizobia growing on the roots of sainfoin, and it is this combination which will ensure excellent yields of high-quality forage for many years.

It takes a year to get established so ideally in the first year it must not be grazed, or if necessary lightly grazed in autumn, and left ungrazed through winter.

Sainfoin is a tall-growing, perennial legume with fragrant, conelike clustering flowers. It is a drought-resistant plant that adapts well to soils with high pH levels.

Native to Asia and Europe, the sainfoin is a noncompetitive plant that is commonly used for hay and livestock feed. It has a relatively short blooming lifespan, between 5 and 20 years. In this months Agricology vlog, Richard Smith (Farm Manager at Daylesford Organic Farm) discusses everything sainfoin; when to cut for silage.

Sainfoin needs to have an opportunity to reseed itself and store carbohydrates in its roots at least once every few years to be able to persist in a forage stand.

Rather, a sainfoin stand should not be grazed until it is fully mature once every two or three years. Sainfoin has good leaf retention and frost tolerance, making it ideal for fall grazing. sainfoin, since the forage’s necessary high seeding rates made establishing a stand costly.

Typically, pure stands are planted at Western producers are considering the potential of this old forage legume. by Troy Smith @Lau Family Farm has had as much as acres dedicated to sainfoin File Size: KB.

Sainfoin is a legume that can be grown as a perennial ley used for livestock feed, is resistant to many common pests and diseases, and has beneficial nutraceutical, anti-bloating and anti-parasitic properties. This guide is an output from the EU-funded project LegumePlus that investigated the benefits of growing sainfoin and other forage legumes to help improve protein utilisation in.

Sainfoin is short lived where root and crown rots are a problem. Sainfoin has 6 to 14 pairs of pinnate, alternate leaves that are oblong. Sainfoin has pale pink flowers as shown in the photo.

Forage. When sainfoin flowers, it is so appealing to Honeybees that they will often ignore all other nectar sources to forage on it. Pollen is also gathered, it being one of the oiliest pollens available. sainfoin flowering in September will be making a big contribution towards bees winter reserves.

Flowering time: May, June, July, August, September. Sainfoin, as bailed forage, is sold at a price comparable to alfalfa. However, the benefits of Sainfoin – both as animal fodder and pollinator feed source – far exceed alfalfa. For the beekeeper, the minimum average honey harvested from pasture fields of Sainfoin is lbs per hive with 2 hives per acre.

The layout of the study is shown in Figure 1. Sainfoin plots were10’x’ with three replications for each variety, one set under irrigation and one set non-irrigated. The three treatments included Sainfoin alone, Sainfoin with Berber Orchardgrass and Sainfoin with Purple Needlegrass.

‘Mesa’ Alfalfa, a dryland variety was used as a control. Sainfoin is a deep-rooted perennial legume commonly grown in the western United States as a forage crop. It is used most commonly in hay and pasture plantings as a non-bloat causing legume.

Interestingly, this crop is highly palatable; cattle and sheep prefer sainfoin over alfalfa. With its high protein and palatability, sainfoin is also preferred over alfalfa by mule deer and other wildlife.

The EU 'LegumePlus' Project - Researching Novel Legumes. Fodder legumes have two advantages over other forage plants. They are high in protein and require little or no nitrogen fertilizer.

There are other benefits which legumes can offer. Some, like sainfoin and birdsfoot trefoil, contain 'bioactive' constituents that optimize protein use in. There have been suggestions sainfoin has a natural tolerance to glyphosate (the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup), even in actively growing plants.

Some previous studies have shown that sainfoin does possess some natural tolerance to glyphosate, but these studies did not quantify the effect of glyphosate on sainfoin forage yield.

Sainfoin is a perennial forage legume native to Eastern Europe that was introduced to Montana and North Dakota in the s. It can grow up to 3 feet tall with pink flowers and many leaflets. Prime Einkorn originated from Russia and is the natural selection of 30 years of organic growing in Canadian Prairie conditions.

Characteristics of Sainfoin. Sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia is) is a perennial legume forage similar to alfalfa. A most important feature is that it is bloat free. Native to the Mediterranean regions of the Middle East and Europe, sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia) was introduced to America as livestock forage, but was rarely planted until improved varieties were developed in the s.

As a long-lived perennial legume, sainfoin packs nutrients comparable to the far more famous alfalfa. Yields are 80 to 90% of alfalfa, but the nutritive quality of sainfoin is maintained longer into the growing season than alfalfa.

Yields of 1, kg/ha (1, lb/acre) in the Brown soil zone, 6, kg/ha (5, lb/acre) in the Dark Brown soil zone, and 5, kg/ha (5, lb/acre) in. AAC Glenview sainfoin, tested as LRCwas developed by the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) Lethbridge Research and Development Centre, Lethbridge, Alberta.
