The Alfalfa Harvest Alert program is in full swing. All of the cooperators in the southern region have submitted samples and the northern region started this week. The frost and colder weather last week slowed alfalfa growth some but stands still made progress.

Below is the Scissor Cut Report for samples collected on May 18th.

The goal of this program is to encourage growers to be strategic with alfalfa hay crop harvest. This is not to determine the date hay harvest should occur.
