1st Cutting Alfalfa... baled and sold!
Spring was wet and just wouldn’t let up, hence, we mowed in nearly full bloom.
Our RFV was lowered because of the late mowing, but for 1st cutting, 2nd year organic alfalfa I’ll be happy with a 136. Tonnage was around 1.3 per ac and I’d say that too was affected by more than occasional standing water. We applied our second application of organic inputs from SoilWorksLLC shortly after and are anticipating the tonnage to rise toward our target of 2 ton per cutting per acre. Lastly, the first cutting was super clean!
God is good, Chad Hansen, Hansen Organic
