The Best Time to Cut Alfalfa
Ily County Agriculturist A. K. h OVIJT T.
Thnro Is n right tlmo to cut alfalfa
for obtaining tho most hay during
tho noaison nad for the good of tho
crop. There l a certain stage of
growth of tho plant when wo may cut
the maximum reed ror anana nay anu
Injuto tho growth of the crop of hay
which follows least. .Not only win
tho hay cut nt this tlmo mako bet
ter feed, but nlso the plants will re
main In hotter condition and make n
larger yield for the entire season.
When the crop Is cut too young, not
only do wo get n larger percentage of
water and a larger yield of shrlnkago
in tho weight of the hay, but nlso tho
plant 'Uei' Is set hack nnd weeds
and will praaios obtain n foot-hold
nnd mako a heavy growth while the
nlfalfn Is regaining its stand. If wo
cut tho crop too late, wo get a
"stominy" hay, which Is not palatable
for stock, nnd also lose valuable feed
In sbnttered leaves and Injure tho
crop which follows by cutting ofT tho
now shoots nt tho crown. The first
crop of hay Is seldom ns largo ns latef
cuttings. tblH Is especially true In
Central Oiegon. It Is of no ndvnn
tago, hnwewr. to cut this llrst crop

until the young shoots of the second
crop nre started.
Tho right time to cut nlfalfa, as
proven by numerous carefully plan
ned experiments, Is at the time Hint
the buds or new shoots of alfalfa
sturt at tho crown. This usually
happens when tho field Is ono-elghlh
to one-quarter In bloom. The crop
should bo cut before these buds or
shoots have grown long enough that
they will he cut off by tho mower
when harvesting the crop of hay.
Many fields of nlfalfa have been In
jured In this section by cutting at the
wrong time. It will pay to wntch the
growth carefully and cut the hay
when tho best time arrives.
Tho time to cut first year alfalfa,
If there are many weeds In the field,
Is when tho weeds begin to shade the
alfalfa. If there are no weeds lu the
now alfalfa, wo may follow tho same
rules ns for tho older fields. Never
cut now alfalfa too low. Cut nt least
two Inches abovo tho ground, so that
nono of the crowns will ho Injured
by the mower nnd nit crowns will be
shaded by tho stubble left.
