Hay growth stimulamts

We farm in central Ohio growing alfalfa, or alfalfa grass mix hay and are trying to up our hay output while cutting cost. We were wondering what everyone els is putting on their crop without comprising lifespan or feed quality.

******, have you found a solution for this? I use a product that increases yield by roughly 9-10.8% and doesn’t affect lifespan or quality, actually helps in that arena too. I know you’re trying to find options to cut costs cost per acre is low and win-win by increasing yields. Shoot me an email ***************** and I’ll pass you the info

We like to apply based on what soil and tissue tests show to be deficient. But for us there’s definitely an emphasis on boron, potassium acetate, and maximizing photosynthetic efficiency as much as possible.

We have found good yield response to So4 from Calcium Products.

It is pelleted gypsum. My gut feeling is that the real benefit comes from the sulfur in the product 17lbs/100. We use 200lbs/acre/year. Depending on freight cost is about $220/ton.

We spray 15 gal UNS18 with 3 gal ATS ,1 pint of black earth liquid Humic HC 24% .

We apply Black Earth dry Humic been doing since 2012 and have over doubled production each year. Last year sprayed on sorghum Sudan produced 175 round bales off of 32 acres .

FBN’s Atarrus is a plant-based peptide biostimulant that should improve fertilizer efficiency in alfalfa.

We have been spraying UAN 32 on at 19 gallons per acre with 1 gallon of Monty’s liquid carbon per acre. This is done in early to mid April and 3-4 weeks after 1st cut. This has been a 50+% increase in hay yield over our old dry fertilizer program. We still spread 200lbs of 9-23-30 in the spring. Probably going to get away from all dry fertilizer and go to spraying on liquid next year. I think...
