Hi there I am ambivelent of the benefits of lucerne and disagree with the notion that it protects soil. In saying that I am really talking about paddocks of it on it's own. And it's all down to management. Bare ground is the biggest problem with it that I can see. how can bare ground be protected?do...

At about the same intensity as the previous amsinckia! So it is flowering and we are slashi...
