Re: How many Hives???
Alfalfa is an unpredictable nectar source. My experience is it often yields the best when temps are high and the alfalfa is somewhat drought stressed. It's both caught me by surprise and disappointed me. I wouldn't get my hopes up to high with irrigated alfalfa. Seems like the water can go more for growth and less for nectar. The best answer is going to come from someone in your area who has tried it. I would inquire about spray, though. I have heard lots of sad alfalfa stories from out west.
