Lucerne belongs to the legume family, which means that, working with soil bacteria called rhizobia, it is able to fix nitrogen to make it available for plant growth.

How to grow:
Mix Manure with soil (30:70),and this will help in germination of seeds. Care needs to be taken to see that the soil is clean from any weed or insect. Open the seed packet on a sheet of paper and put the seeds into the prepared soil to half inch of depth.
While watering, sprinkling water through a sprinkler or manually using your hands. Germination may take place 10-18 days. Then you may transplant the seedlings to various pots or desired areas.
Take care as your child. Protect from pest and insects. Grow in healthy organic mixed soil and give timely micronutrients and fertilizers.
