Throw and mow alfalfaContributors to this thread:
Never have done it but thinking about mixing either wheat or winter rye with alfalfa over a sprayed field and mow over it. I have grown nice alfalfa in this field in the past.Anyone have experience doing this. Thanks Lewis
That will work well. I've done it before.
We call it a cover crop, the wheat, and here it allows the rancher to get hay off it the first year while protecting the young alfalfa. They harrow it, broadcast spread it and then roll it.
Yep did that with winter rye and worked well.
