The use of barley straw for controlling algae in ponds is becoming more common. Its use dates from England in the 's, where studies found it to be effective for this purpose. Since then its use has spread throughout the United States both by pond owners looking for easy and effective ways to combat algae, and by scientists trying to assess.

Decomposition of the alfalfa root system typically contributes about lb/acre N to the soil after one year, and an additional 50 lb/acre N in the second and third years. Significantly less N is added in alfalfa-grass mixtures than in pure.

Quality alfalfa can be harvested in several ways. The harvest system can significantly Controlling alfalfa quality book forage quality, and quantity.

Alfalfa Management Genuity ® Alfalfa allows you to drive more value per acre Producing high yielding and high quality forage with fewer weeds is now easier and more convenient than ever before.

The end result is more milk or more beef per acre – and controlling weeds throughout the season. Alfalfa has a relatively high demand for some nutrients compared to other commonly grown crops.

Each ton of alfalfa dry matter harvested removes about 14 pounds of phosphate (P2O5) and 58 pounds of potash (K2O). This is the nutrient equivalent of pounds of a fertilizer. Each ton of alfalfa also removes the calcium and magnesium.

Alfalfa (/ æ l ˈ f æ l f ə /), also called lucerne and called Medicago sativa in binomial nomenclature, is a perennial flowering plant in the legume family is cultivated as an important forage crop in many countries around the world.

It is used for grazing, hay, and silage, as well as a green manure and cover name alfalfa is used in North : Fabaceae. Alfalfa, (Medicago sativa), perennial, cloverlike, leguminous plant of the pea family (Fabaceae), widely grown primarily for hay, pasturage, and silage. Alfalfa is known for its tolerance of drought, heat, and cold and for the remarkable productivity and quality of its herbage.

The plant is also. Alfalfa Hay Quality Testing Alfalfa is the most productive and highest quality forage species. Over one million acres of alfalfa have been harvested each year in Montana since Yield and forage quality of alfalfa vary widely across environments and operations.

Currently there is much interest in targeting spe-cialized hay Size: KB. Cultivars of many forage crops (alfalfa, white clover, tall fescue, orchardgrass, etc.) are not inbred lines or hybrids but, rather, populations. Thus, while every seed in a bag of wheat, soybean or corn is genetically identical, every seed in an alfalfa seed bag is genetically different.

Abstract: Forage yield, quality, and stand persistence are all major considerations in the development of a profitable harvest management program.

Sufficient time must be allowed for alfalfa to build energy reserves before winter. This is an important aspect of winter survival and stand persistence. A shortened alfalfa growing season in northern regions will make it necessary.

Alfalfa grows best on deep soils with adequate internal drainage. Deep soils encourage development of alfalfa’s extensive tap-root system, which is capable of utilizing water and nutrients from a large volume of soil. Physical limitations to rooting depth caused by hard pans or bedrock restrict alfalfa’s productivity.

Schwankl. Some Considerations of Alfalfa Digestibility Alfalfa changes daily in forage quality as it matures.

Rainy weather may delay harvest and result in low quality. Slowing the rate of change of alfalfa quality with maturity would be of economic value to farmers. Creep-graze calves and lambs, allowing them access to highest-quality pasture. As pasture growth exceeds the needs of the livestock, remove some fields from the rotation and allow growth to accumulate for hay or haylage.

Estimating preharvest alfalfa quality C hoose five representative 2-square foot areas in the field. (Sample more times for fields larger than 30 acres.) In each area, determine the stage of the most mature stem (see below).

Then measure the height of the tallest stem, NOT. The highest quality of alfalfa is low in fiber and high in digestible protein and total digestible nutrients (TDN).

The best time to harvest alfalfa to maximize quality is during the very young vegetative stages to early bud stage. However, cutting at these very early growth stages produces low yields and can greatly weaken alfalfa stands. Alfalfa regrows its most robust, higher yielding shoots from the crown of the plant, and alfalfa stores its regrowth reserves in the crown and upper taproot.

While cutting this short also reduces forage quality a little, Lang said the improved yield potential from cutting low maximizes milk per acre. three main benefits of reduced lignin alfalfa: 1) Higher quality forage (if harvested at same time), 2) Wider harvest window (if rain), and 3) Higher yield (if harvested later at same quality).

Feeding trials are being conducted at 3 to 4 universities over this winter period and there will be actual.
