Sainfoin. [Newspaper Article] — The Mildura Cultivator — 15 November 1888
Sainfoin. A great deal of attention is now being attracted to the new forage plant, called esperset or sainfoin, which is now being introduced into the United States. The principal interest in the new plant centres in the stock-growing regious of the more arid portion of the country. such as Texas, Colorado, California, &c. Everything hearing on the subject is greedily read, all the more as the secd of the plant is not yet in abundant. supply, and those who have had actual expericnce are therefore limited. A cor respondent to the S. Chron,,icle, who has had much acquaintance with this grass, writes that it is one of the com monest plants in the chalk districts of England. lie states that he has grown three tons of sainfoin hay to the acre upon soil that was entirely chalk, and that would not produce five bushels of llheat upon the same area. The hay is very nutritious if cut when the plant is in fall bloom. In this respect it resem bles alfalfa. The only drawback to the exte...
