The Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys contain 70% of the State's 1.16 million acres of alfalfa. Alfalfa grows on one of every six acres devoted to field crops, and it provided California farmers with a gross revenue of $173,000,000 in 1966. Development and evaluation of new and improved alfalfa varieties constitute an important part of the University of California's alfalfa research and extension program.
