This study aimed to determine a sainfoin variety best suited to the soil and weather conditions of the Great Lake Basin region inUlaangom soum of Uvs aimag (province). We carried out studies into five varieties of sainfoin, including Peschany 1251, Tashyl 3, Novosibirsky 1284, Shortandisky 83, and Mikhailovsky-5, which were compared with each other without irrigation trial. Sainfoin has a  high resistance to cold winter conditions, high temperatures and and dry drought conditions. Sainfoin varieties growing in Mongolia are highly palatable perennial leguminous plants.  According to the result of our research, sainfoin is well acclimatized to Uvs province’s soil and weather conditions. The variety with the highest performance showing is Taskhyl 3, which was generated atthe Plant Research Center of Khakassia, a republic of Russia located in southern Siberia.
