A breeding program to develop alfalfa varieties which are resistant to root, crown, and foliar diseases was shown to be needed in the high-altitude agricultural area of Mexico. The well-adapted Mexican alfalfa, Apaseo, and the Spanish alfalfa, Valenciana, are recommended as the basis for this program. The performance of red clover, a new forage legume in the Valley of Toluca, was outstanding. Kenland medium red clover was harvested 14 times during 3 harvest years and produced an average annual yield of 12.19 tons of hay per acre.
