For more information about using and interpreting information from alfalfa scissors-cut sampling or in using PEAQ sticks, go to:
LATE AND PREVENTED PLANTING: Check other news items posted here for links to a wider variety of information about late and prevented planting issues. Corn silage is still the best forage option for any of the corn silage that people still need to plant for the coming year.
