The benefits of using a companion crop over herbicides when planting alfalfa are well known. Reduced soil erosion, higher forage yields or weed control are some examples as of why to choose this strategy over herbicides. New potential companion crops were investigated in southern Quebec in order to better tolerate dry conditions. Sudangrass hybrids are drought-tolerant grasses used in forage production and can be a good candidate to use as a companion crop.
