Alfalfa has spread and become popular because of its productivity and high File Size: KB.   21 Feb , I purchased this short book to learn how to grow alfalfa and related grasses on land that has lain fallow for some years. The title suggests this is the focus - a 'How To' treatise on the subject. Instead, I found that the book is really a pitch for green agricultural practices. While these may be worthy, I am disappointed for my uses/5(11). Land used to grow alfalfa could also be used to grow hay. Which of the following is true when the farmer plants hay and the market price of alfalfa rises? a. The opportunity cost of producing hay decreases. b. The opportunity cost of producing hay increases. c. There will be no change in the opportunity cost of producing hay. d.

Clements in South Western Ontario, Canada. We establish, maintain, and harvest all of our own crops specializing in alfalfa. Alfalfa dehy is produced from standing alfalfa, which is mowed and chopped in the field, delivered to the dehydrating plant still containing a minimum of 60 percent moisture, artificially dried, ground and pelleted.

Dehy can replace a portion of both the grain and the forage in rations for milking cows. 4 Alfalfa Management Guide Surviving plants will be stunted and continue to yield less in subsequent years (Figure 2).

A waiting period after destroying the old stand is necessary to allow the toxic compounds to degrade or move out of the root zone of the new seedlings. Weather conditions influ-ence the speed with which the toxins are removed.

This site is part of a USDA-NIFA project focusing on the production of high quality alfalfa hay for export from the humid eastern United States. Soil K levels are more difficult to increase because alfalfa plants can take up excess K from the soil — this is sometimes called “luxury consumption” (Figure 7).

Luxury consumption often results in elevated K concentrations in plant tissues, increased removal of K from the field, and reduced economic returns.

Final report. During the past 10 years, California top-quality alfalfa hay has only occasionally been over $/ton of DM delivered, and in generally ranged between $ and $/ton (90%DM hay).

So the economics of production appear to be quite questionable. World-wide demand for field pea is strong, however the European Community may regulate field pea imports more severely in the near future and this is expected to weaken demand.

Inin the United States the f.o.b. warehouse price for dry field pea was over $/cwt. Growers have reported gross incomes of $/acre growing field pea for seed. It may also help you understand some of the constraints seed growers face in producing seed for sprouting.
