What factors do farmers need to consider when deciding to cut alfalfa?
There's all kinds of factors you need to take in consideration when deciding to cut your alfalfa. You may have to cut earlier if you've got a pressure from insects, maybe a rain coming. There's weather, insects, and just overall management on. If you want that alfalfa to get good regrowth, you wanna cut it before like 17, 14 days before frost so it has some regrowth and it doesn't winter kill.
