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. After the last cutting of alfalfa is taken off, apply 200 pounds per acre of dry potash (0-0-60) to winterize the field. Maintain a pH of 6.7 or higher for optimal yield.
