Ken Roberts shows an excellent stand of lucerne on his farm near Wānaka. Lucerne, also known as alfalfa, is mainly grown in New Zealand for haymaking. It is a native of Iran and neighbouring regions. Under irrigation in naturally dry areas it can produce several hay crops per year. Alfalfa sprouts are often used in salads.
