It has been a while, no good excuses just a wee nee I guess. This winter has been real hard, kind of like the third grade was for me. My days of row cropping are over strictly a hay farmer now. Worked on an
alf alfa patch last fall, worked the ground up good and rolled it both directions twice used my van brunt drill with openers up and just sprinkled the seed on the ground half seed rate one way and the other
half rate the other way then rolled it all in the same day. That was Sept.2 that seed lie in the ground until the last week of Sept. when I finally got a rain to sprout it. My lord you have never seen such a
pretty stand. Then the second week of Oct came and brought with it a killing freeze and the alf alfa was history. Now in the field I have a killer stand of winter annuals called Penny Crest. My plan is to
wait after frost danger and plant it in Sorgum Sudan grass, get the forage off of that and put it into alf alfa this fall unless it is dry again then I will put it to cereal rye and spring plant the alf
alfa. Your opinions are very much wanted and needed.

Yikes.

Weather has been a female dog. Many of us way too much rain and weather, we are in a near blizzard started couple hours ago again. Others like you get the short end of the stick too dry.

Have to be careful replanting alfalfa that the old stand is dead and gone so new seeds grow, but your situation sounds like it shouldn?t be a problem. You just wouldn?t want 10% of your alfalfa to be growing this summer and then try to seed into it this fall....

Hope we can share the rain a little better this year, I?m so sick of the 3 years of flooding we have had here, this spring looks wetter yet not good.

Paul

Be careful about interseeding alfalfa into existing alfalfa. Established alfalfa will kill any new seeding. Not sure if your alfalfa will be established enough, or if you have a thick enough stand to worry about this.

Alfalfa really only produces when established. That makes spring alfalfa not very productive that first year. In my area, September is a tad late for fall planting alfalfa. If you fall plant again, you might consider doing it earlier.

Do you still have the 95 with the 20 inch row Gleaner corn head? I think about that often when I am told my old equipment can't be adapted to today's modern farming. Good to have you back. Tom
