Spring Planting Alternatives
What can I plant if I missed my corn window or had hail damage early? This is a big question we hear at RSS every year. We understand your sense of loss and empathize; but, moving on, now is the time to determine what your best alternatives are. Our first recommendation is Forage Sorghum. This single cut option can produce good tons if you’re growing it for silage. We provide two additional options that have high quality feed values for milking cows.
A second recommendation is a Sorghum Sudan grass. This multiple cut option will give you plenty of tons. The downfall is that it’s not as desirable for a dairy but it can be really good for a heifer feed lot or for a beef cow operation.
These three product options provide excellent alternatives after a stressful event. Good luck in 2020.
First Cutting On Alfalfa
Did your first cutting not perform to the level it should have? Did you see the heat and dryness affect your cutting yield? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then we can help you.
Alpha Joule will help with stress mitigation by cooling it down and blocking enzymes that shut down growth. Some benefits include: phosphate solubilization through microbial activity, reduced ethylene production (associated with aging, flowering and senescence), pH regulation, reduced reactive oxygen species, and general stress mitigation. This can give you options to see 11% yield increases and possible protein increases. Call us today to discuss applications and timing. Let’s improve your cutting yields today.
