I put in a little patch back in the 70's. It likes well drained ground as it doesn't like wet feet. The Crested Wheat pretty much choked it out but last year with all the rain I could not believe the stand I had. I will probably have another good one this year. It is sweeter then Alfalfa and the stems are hollow and seem more palatable.
How is the regrowth ? can you cut once & get some fall grazing out of it ?
sainfoin needs sweet gound & I guess thats all . I was told you can spray it with a small dose of roundup to cut back the grass & not hurt the sainfion . Thanks
I would not seed it as a straight stand, but it works great in a mix. We used it in a mix with some alsike clover, alfalfas, milkvetch and grasses. Some areas have more clover, some alfalfa, some sanfoin, some even have a bit of milkvetch. It's all lighter sandy land, worked great.
