  • Alfalfa Pest and Crop Management Session

    Published on February 16, 2021

    MI Ag Ideas to Grow With 2021 - Field Crops Session: Forages are an important crop for livestock producers and an important cash crop on many farms. We have seen an increase in pest and weed issues in alfalfa and mixed species forage production. Pests such as potato leafhopper and alfalfa weevil have become bigger problems. Growers are looking to protect their stands and reduce the impact of weeds for better hay quality and returns. Michigan State University Extension Educator Phil Kaatz will talk about management strategies to address these and other issues. He will also visit about what types of grass species may be best for yields and palatability for the horse market. Please be aware this is a partial recording and the beginning is missing.
