MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Alabama’s wheat farmers who are considering using their freeze-damaged wheat crop as feed for cattle are being warned that the crop could have dangerous levels of nitrate and should be tested before use as a forage.

Ron Sparks, Commissioner of the Department of Agriculture and Industries, has offered the services of the department’s toxicology labs to assist in this effort without charge.

Producers are urged to complete a submission form available from all Extension System offices. The form is for farm location and contact information.
