Synopsis

Synopsis

Alfalfa-grass mixtures yielded more forage with slightly higher alfalfa content than the same combinations with alfalfa and grasses in alternate rows, six inches apart. Growing the alfalfa and grasses as alternate double or triple rows resulted in considerable yield reduction as compared to alternate single rows or mixtures. Grass in rows 6 inches from an alfalfa row had higher yield and protein content than in rows 12, 18, or 24 inches from an alfalfa row.
