The EU 'Healthy Hay' Project - reinventing sainfoin

Sainfoin is a unique forage legume. High-yielding and drought resistant, it thrives on alkaline soils. The plant is a natural anthelmintic and the fodder produced is highly nutritious and bloat free. This low input crop adds fertility to the soil and provides much-needed nectar for insects.

The EU 'Healthy Hay' project spent four years researching this valuable crop and the findings are published on this site. In today's farming industry where sustainability and low input costs are key, sainfoin has a major role to play.
