dont follow a legume with a legume.Continuos bean simply wont work,because the beans cannot stand the high nitrogen built up over time ,since they need a very little nitrogen when small,but dont like it afterwards.Same way with your alfalfa,put in corn,wheat oats or something in to use that excess nitrogen for two or three years then replant.thats basically why corn/bean rotation works.the corn needs the nitrogen,so it uses the excess that would kill back your an example,peas used to be early on the number one crop in okla.Several seasons of pea on pea led to the failure of the crop statewide.left folks with nothing in the middle of summer too early to plant peas again so they planted cotten,made bumper crops until nitrogen levels went down again.then they switched to wheat or corn.cotten if you can manage it is a good crop,following these things.needs less water than corn,and it mellows the ground.old saying around is you can plant anything after cotten and it will do well.but cotten requires a lot of equipment folks dont have.another thing would be sunflowers.big user of nitrogen,deep roots that will help break up the subsoil for better water retention and usage.and fairly easy to plant with equipment you already have. market would be the thing there,if you have a market in your area,that would be feasable to haul to its a good crop.and it will grow with little rainfall.sorguhm, barley,oats wheat cotten all these things would work in a rotation but you need to get rid of that nitrogen.sudan grass if you bale hay can be a good one also that grows about anywhere,and properly cured makes good hay.
