A well-balanced, alfalfa-grass mixture. The grasses in this mixture are not only very digestible, but also reduce potato leaf hopper pressure and help keep weeds from invading the stand. Makes a nice dry hay to feed on the farm or to sell on the hay market.
- Best on soils that are good for alfalfa.
- Wet– Not desirable. Alfalfa does not tolerate wet soils well.
- Drought– Excellent for alfalfa. Very good for tall fescue and festulolium.
- pH range—Alfalfa prefers soils that are 6.5 and higher.
Cut leaving a 3-4 inch stubble height when alfalfa is in early bud to early flower.
With good management and proper soils, alfalfa should last a minimum of 3 years. Consistent early harvest of alfalfa will shorten alfalfa stand life. For longer alfalfa stand life, delay fall harvest to full flower.
Fair. Grasses are more tolerant than the other alfalfa.
