Barley And Alfalfa

Categories: Grains and Forage Crops

I have some alfalfa which is a poor stand. Can I disc it up heavily and

seed in some barley for winter pasture?

You can get barley into your alfalfa as you propose, but you should not

seed until fall. The more barley you get into your alfalfa, however, the

less alfalfa you will have afterward. If you want to improve your

afalfa, keep everything else out of the field and help the plants by

regular irrigations during the balance of the growing season.
