|This field should be all green. The bare spots are the result of winterkill.|
So why not just re-plant the bare areas in the alfalfa field? Alfalfa plants produce toxins which reduce the germination and the growth of new alfalfa plants. This can occur when alfalfa is reseeded into an old alfalfa field rather than being rotated, or when alfalfa is seeded into an existing alfalfa field to thicken it.
|Alfalfa seed is about $150 per 50 pound bag. We have purchased 22 bags so far.|
