2018-140: Forage & grazing potential of hybrid fall rye
Researcher: Vern Baron
Planting fall rye earlier increases yield, grazing time, and carrying capacity. However, planting too early or late can reduce winter hardiness. No research to date has been conducted on planting date, spring/fall grazing effects on forage potential when harvested for silage or green feed. The ultimate goal of this project is to develop a duel purpose grazing/forage for silage winter cereal with a forage quality similar to barley at the dough stage.
Results: Waiting for research results.
