Alfalfa is a long-lived perennial in the Fabaceae family with trifoliate clover-like leaves and leguminous flowers varying from purple to yellow. Alfalfa provides beneficial properties and food for animals and humans, and also helps to mend poor soil by providing nutrients like nitrogen, effectively becoming a green manure.
