dc.description Alfalfa is considered to be the single most important forage crop for hay in North Dakota. Proper management for optimizing maximum yields and stand maintenance must consider the time of cutting. frequency, rainfall. and stage of bloom. This study showed the best performance in terms of yield to be a near mid June and early August harvest. An additional later harvest did not add substantially to the yields. A full bloom harvest first cutting followed by an October second harvest resulted in high yields. but quality of forage was greatly reduced. Overall performance of the alfalfa is highly dependent upon amounts and timing of rainfall. en
