When it comes to the discussion about water conservation, much of the focus and often blame has been placed on one crop; alfalfa. Jokingly referred to as the A word, alfalfa is one of most commonly grown crops in the state of Utah and one of the most missunderstood. In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Matt Yost, Associate Department Head and Professor of Plant, Soils, and Climate at Utat State University. Dr. Yost helps us better understand alfalfa, why its grown in Utah, and whether or not it is a net benefit.
