Abstract
Understanding and research on the mechanism of alfalfa cold resistance has become one of the hot spots in grassland and pasture accompany the rapid development of the scale of feeding grassland construction. This paper expounds the origin of damage to the alfalfa caused by low temperature stress in winter , and summarizes the physiological and biochemical changes of alfalfa and its cold resistance, and discusses the countermeasures to improve the cold resistance of Alfalfa from three aspects: variety selection and cold resistance breeding, cultivation and management, genetic engineering. The prospect of future research on improving cold resistance of alfalfa was discussed.
