- ... Minimum-tillage establishment of forages offers potential advantages over the conventional method in terms of reducing energy and labor requirements, erosion hazard, and improving flexibility, and timeliness of operation. Our objective was to compare these methods of establishing alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) with various herbicides, time intervals between herbicide application and seeding, and see ...

- ... Fall-grown tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea, Schreb.) provides a relatively inexpensive forage for winter grazing. Quality and yield of actively growing tall fescue increases when accumulated from August and harvested through time in the early fall. The effect of regrowth age on fall accumulated tall fescue quality has not been evaluated under similar harvest climates and animal performance on sum ...
