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.

You’ve heard us raving over Envita™ for a while now. Primarily applied in-furrow; though seed treatments and foliar applications have been successful. Envita can colonize and live within the plant tissue of many plant species to help the plant fix and utilize nitrogen. It is not limited to the roots or rhizosphere like many nitrogen fixing bacteria. This is beneficial because Envita has a unique mode of action that allows the plant to better move nitrogen throughout the entire plant at a cellular level and therefore the nitrogen is much more efficient and plant available.
Hybrid selection is one of the most critical decisions a grower can make for the success of their operation. A number of factors go into this decision that are related to environment, farming practices, weather, geography, and markets. All of these factors play a big part in narrowing down the hybrid selection choice.
