It happens often in our world; the one who does most of the work behind the scenes gets almost none of the credit and is undervalued for their talents. Alfalfa is often the underestimated plant in the agriculture world, known mainly for the hay it produces, but it offers much more than that.

内布拉斯加州大学的推广饲料专家Bruce Anderson在High Plains Journal的Farmer U&Trade Show上发表了关于苜蓿被低估的品质以及如何成为许多种植18luck首页系统的优势。

大多数生产商将苜蓿与玉米搭配,以与苜蓿旋转一起观察产量优势。安德森(Anderson)以一项研究的例子为例,在该研究中,赤苜蓿之后的玉米的第一年增加了9至18%的产量,而次年的玉米收益率持续增强。除了收益的好处外,苜蓿在杂草种群方面也可以改变游戏规则。

When it comes to precision agriculture, technology is often front of mind. But when planting or selecting cover crops to graze, tech often goes out the window for growers over word of mouth.

With more and more larger dairies coming to the High Plains region, it’s only natural for farmers to wonder how they might be able to raise alfalfa hay for that target market.

Mike Brouk, Kansas State University professor and Extension dairy specialist, said large dairies need consistency in their feed supplies.

“The thing you can do to distinguish yourself from other growers is to have a consistent product,” Brouk said. “They don’t have time to test every bale before they feed it. I guarantee that dairy manager looks at the pounds of milk shipped off the farm each day.” Inconsistent feed quality, he added, can result in 4 to 5 pounds of milk reduction per cow, and that’s dollars right out of the dairy’s pocket.阅读更多
