Description

In the past, many university research trials and on-farm demonstrations have determined a range of cutting intervals for alfalfa. Most researchers have agreed that the optimum harvest frequency is about every 35 days to ensure top yields, without sacrificing too much in the way of forage quality and stand persistence. Others use a strategy of harvesting at 10% bloom.
