Soil Scientist Recommends Using Manure On Alfalfa

Hay and Forage

Hay growers seem evenly split on whether applying manure to alfalfa fields is a good idea or not, says Michael Russelle, soil scientist with USDA-Agricultural Research Service. About half the alfalfa growers he talks to say they would never do it, while the other half regularly apply manure to alfalfa. He’ll give recommendations on the topic during a Feb. 5 presentation at the National Alfalfa Symposium in Kearney, NE.
