While most Midwestern alfalfa is planted in the springtime, summer seeding has its benefits as well. For those who like to plant oats with their alfalfa for oatlage or for grain, consider planting a pure stand of oats followed by a summer seeded pure stand of alfalfa. This system will likely be more beneficial for the alfalfa component and still provide the oat crop benefit. The reason for this is twofold: Alfalfa doesn’t do well with competition and weed pressure is less of a problem in summer seeded alfalfa. Another benefit of summer seeding alfalfa is the following year will be a full production year instead of one or two less cuttings after a spring seeding.

Corn is very susceptible to drought damage because the plant needs water for cell elongation and growth. Because corn cannot delay vegetative growth, there is a danger of yield loss from early drought conditions. Corn plants often roll their leaves to protect themselves from excessive moisture loss due to transpiration. Plants may roll their leaves in response to inadequate moisture, however, rolled leaves in the afternoon may not mean that corn is under drought stress. A key indicator of drought stress is when corn leaves begin to roll early in the morning and continue to stay rolled throughout the day.
