Forage and Grain: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
Twenty non - and very non - dominant alfalfa varieties were compared over three seasons. The top - yielding variety, Pioneer 5929, has maintained this position for the last three years. The yields decreased considerably from the previous year, however. Part of the loss can be attributed to the sacrifice of the first cutting because of damage by the Egyptian alfalfa weevil. Pioneer 5929 was the top -yielding variety during the entire trial, producing more than 30 tons per acre. Four other varieties produced more than 28 tons per acre: Ardiente by Agripro; Pierce by Northrup King, Palmer Special by the Palmer brothers of Graham county; and Safford 80 LH.
