Caption: Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) also known as lucerne. Alfalfa is a nutrient-rich crop usually grown as a feed for livestock. It is a good source of the B- vitamins and the minerals potassium, magnesium and phosphorus. It is also useful as it enriches the soil in which it grows, using nitrogen from the air to make nitrates, a natural fertiliser.
