Plant growth regulators are valuable tools in a grower's tool box as they can decrease plant height, lodging and increase pollination, plant tilling and seed yield. MFSA conducted small plot research exploring the potential for four plant growth regulators in hybrid brome, timothy and perennial ryegrass and alfalfa.
New agricultural technologies are available to growers every season. One new technology already used by many growers is variable rate technology. it makes sense to focus on variable rate nitrogen (N) as it is likely the most important input in grass seed production. The goal of this study is to analyze the feasibility of variable rate N in grass seed production.
A good fertility program is needed to maximize seed yields in timothy crops. Phosphorus (P) is an essential nutrient in timothy production as it is responsible for many functions including early season root growth, greater flowering, seed production as well as increased water use efficiency. The objective of this research was to determine seed yield response to varying rates of broadcast P and to determine how soil test P levels are affected with varying rates of broadcast P.
