Many alfalfa fields in northeast Nebraska are planted on rather steep eroded hillsides. Each year the alfalfa on the hillsides turn yellow in June and often times remains stunted throughout the growing season.
Where we applied PRO CAL 40 on these fields the yellow alfalfa did not appear on these hillsides.
There are several reasons why PRO CAL 40 can eliminate the yellows and make the alfalfa more productive. These include better infiltration, better air water exchange allowing for better nitrogen fixation, improved root growth due to a better soil condition, a good calcium and sulfur source as well as others.
This field which is 5 years old produced over 2 ton/acre on the first cutting. This was significantly more than the field with the yellow stunted alfalfa which was second year alfalfa. Many producers have told us that PRO CAL 40 will greatly enhance their production of the older stands.
