Alfalfa Harvest Alert May 8th

The Alfalfa Harvest Alert Program is now underway. The goal of this project is to alert alfalfa growers to start first crop harvest when the crop is at a level of quality and yield potential that meets their specific needs.

Keep in mind, the goal of this project is not to try and name the day that you should harvest. Rather the goal is to encourage growers who are busy with the management of other crops to be more strategic with hay crop harvest as it relates to their needs.

Attached below is the scissor cut reports for samples collected on May 4th and 7th.
