Whats everyone doing for their alfalfa, other then basic fertilizer?

I have a pretty strong pure alfalfa market in my area that i sell into usually everything is presold, so i fertilize, foliar feed with anything the tissue and soil samples say it needs, and i also put fungicide and insecticide on when ever it needs it. So is anyone doing anything else that i haven't thought of?

I was talking to a local rep yesterday about a root stimulant product. Forget the name off the top of my head but can ask him what it is if youre interested. Its a PGR type product. Can apply once at a higher rate or after each cutting. Tricks the plant into stress response, causes root stimulation and will boost yield. Havnt used it yet myself.
