Breeding programs are focused on developing varieties with higher productivity, improved quality of green mass, resistance to diseases and pests, durability, quick recovery after cutting and etc. In the selection of varieties with high quality For this purpose the breeders use methods that directly influence protein and fiber content or increasing the percentage of leaf with more than 3 leaflets per leaf. The development of new alfalfa generation – multifoliolate is the achievement in this direction. In this paper the results from studies on Bulgarian multifolilate alfalfa variety (Mnogolistna 1) are presented. Studied genotypes differ in content of crude protein, amino acids and neutral and acid-detergent fiber and digestibility of dry matter in different parts of plants.
