I believe WTI makes two different blends of most of their products, a southern blend and a northern one if I'm not mistaken.

might want to try WTI EDGE or EXTREME too. Edge has some alfalfa. i believe both are drought tolerant too. variety is the best tool for plots


deer love Extreme, i can vouch for that.

good luck

Perennial Peanuts could be a great option as they have the same nutritional properties as alfalfa plus it grows in crappy soil if that's an issue cost about 300 an acre

Hunly I've planted Alfalfa several times over the years and just haven't had to much luck with it. Just to hot and dry during the summer months for Alfalfa here in the south...
