What is alfalfa?

Unlike other common honey plants in our region, alfalfa is a perennial plant. Therefore, it is particularly popular with both professional beekeepers and amateur beekeepers. And among consumers, alfalfa honey is valued, which has a pronounced herbal taste and a wonderful aroma.

Alfalfa is planted with seeds throughout the territory of our country, where beekeeping is well developed – in the western and southwestern regions. A huge number of hectares are allocated for it. The fact is that this plant is of great importance for agriculture. The stalks and leaves of alfalfa are fed to livestock, and the nectar produced inside the inflorescences is the best food for bees. It guarantees a large harvest of honey, up to 300 kg can be obtained from one hectare. With such a collection during the sale of honey, both wholesale and retail is possible.

Alfalfa, as already mentioned above, is not afraid of frost or drought. Seeds planted in the ground will begin to germinate at a temperature above 3 degrees. The seeds will not die during spring frosts, so you can start sowing them in early spring. This will allow you to count on the honey harvest at the beginning of summer. Alfalfa is considered an undemanding plant. Any soil is suitable for its planting. In the wild, it grows anywhere. It can be seen along roads, on the slopes of ravines, in streams and meadows. This honey plant is a vigorous crop, it reproduces not only by seeds, but also by shoots. Their sale – wholesale and retail – has been established in our online store.

The composition of nectar on alfalfa inflorescences is constantly changing. The maximum amount of sugar in it is observed around one o’clock in the afternoon and four o’clock in the evening throughout the hot summer. And at 2 and 5 p.m., respectively, the level of glucose in it drops rapidly. At this time, bees do not pollinate the plant.

It is believed that 1 ha of alfalfa will be enough for 10 bee colonies to collect nectar. In order to obtain pure alfalfa honey, it should be ensured that there are large crops of other honey plants near the fodder field. Alfalfa honey has a high glucose content, which causes it to quickly thicken and crystallize. Nevertheless, it is valued among consumers who are interested in retail due to its healing properties.
