Is the glyphosate resistant alfalfa seeding rate different than conventional varieties?

No.   NDSU recommends a general seeding rate of 10 lbs/acre of alfalfa for both glyphosate resistant alfalfa and conventional varieties.   Glyphosate resistant varieties have a thicker seed coating and therefore are heavier than conventional varieties.
