  1. The Siberian alfalfa as found wild at Omsk in western Siberia. In my Siberian investigation I learned that as found wild upon the Siberian steppes, this is a valuable forage plant in regions where the mercury freeze, sometimes without snow; that it is green very early in the spring; that it endures severe drought, that it does well upon soils underlaid with hardpan; that it is considerably resistant to alkali; that it flourishes where the common alfalfa from Europe winterkills; that the Siberian form of this species is so much superior to the European form in hardiness and other desirable characteristics that to go by the botanical name only, is very misleading. The present sample is from hay cut from wild plants before my arrival.

  1. Siberian alfalfa from Omsk, Siberia. This sample I picked from wild plants in the dry steppes near Omsk late in the fall when there was a little snow on the ground. I found the plants held their own perfectly with other native plants in the compact prairie or steppe sod. Omsk is in latitude 55 degrees.

  1. Originally from a single plant growing wild in the Voronezh province of the central Volga River region, Russia. It is a natural hybrid of Medicago falcata and Medicago sativa and found wild in the dry steppes. This spontaneous or natural hybrid will sometimes have blue flowers on one branch, yellow on another and sometimes both colors on the same branch. The present sample is the fourth generation raised by Prof, Williams at the Moscow agricultural college and is his No, 571X572

  1. The name Turkestanica is not a botanical distinction, but one given by Russian agronomists to distinguish the alfalfa found in Russian Turkestan in central Asia. The present sample is originally from Tashkent, the capitol of Russian Turkestan, grown at Moscow, and originally the seed from one plant. At Moscow agricultural college Prof. Williams has found this strain very hardy, very productive, and beautiful plant; while the French Lucerne, by which is meant the ordinary south European or north Agrican form of the species, winterkills at Moscow, Russia.
