Journal:
Forage and Grain: A College of Agriculture Report
Abstract:
Twenty four alfalfa varieties with Fall Dormancy ratings of 8 or 9 were tested in a replicated small plot trial on a heavy clay loam soil on the Safford Agricultural Center. This was the first year of a new study and there were some difficulties caused by irrigation management on the heavy soil. Pioneer 5888 was the highest yielding variety with a yield just over 9 tons per acre in 6 cuttings. Heat units with thresholds of 77 F and 40° F are included for each cutting in the study.
