Maximize Hay Production

To maximize hay production, Edd’s recommends applying 200 pounds per acre of 3-10-30 liquid fertilizer after every cutting. Add micronutrients boron and sulfur to the first application to increase plant height and budding. Insecticide may also be added with every application to control potato leafhoppers and other pests.
