Do you mean you want to fertilize with Miracle Gro when you plant your alfalfa?

I don't think so. Miracle Gro is expensive and is used up in a very short period of time - you would need to reapply every one or two weeks. Miracle Gro time release lasts longer but is even pricier.

But more importantly, alfalfa is a nitrogen fixing crop. It defeats the purpose of planting alfalfa if you feed it nitrogen.
