NMSU Scientists Developing Drought-Tolerant Alfalfa

The research is important because two-thirds of hay produced in the U.S. is grown in drought-prone areas of the Great Plains or the western U.S., said Ian Ray, the professor who runs NMSU's alfalfa breeding and genetics program.  More News New Mexico
