Description

Climatic variations impact alfalfa growth and development making it impossible to use a calendar date each spring to best determine when to harvest the first crop. However, University of Wisconsin agronomists developed a simple procedure that takes climatic variations into account to estimate the relative feed value (RFV) of standing alfalfa to better predict when to begin first crop harvest.
