Area Alfalfa crop severely damaged by Mike Tighe t h staff writer Yoyo Type snowfall and temperatures last Winter resulted in the virtual smothering of much of the Tri state areas Alfalfa crop with damage estimates running into the millions of dollars. Furthermore continued wet weather this Spring has kept Farmers from their Fields and so planting is currently running two to four weeks behind schedule a the latest planting in memory. Dubuque county Extension agent Gerald Mcgrane said most farms were affected by the Winter kill. He set a $1 million damage figure for the county. Extension agent Lee Gruenhaupt in Alla Makee county said about 20 per cent of his county a 50,000 acres of Alfalfa is dead. Similar figures came from Delaware Fayette Clayton Buchanan Jackson Jones Howard and Winneshiek counties in Iowa counties further West were less affected. Wisconsin a Lafayette county agent Charles Hartman estimated a possible 40,000 of the county a 75,000 acres of the crop Are severely damaged or killed. He said losses could amount to $80 an acre a $3.2 million. Grant Iowa and Crawford counties in southwestern Wisconsin also were affected by the Winter kill As were to Daviess and Carroll in Illinois. Agents refer to the Winter As a a open because the 54.6 inches of snowfall usually melted within a few Days after falling leading to higher soil moisture and Little insulation against a number of near Zero Days. Mcgrane noted that the ground was wet and the cold snaps caused the water in the ground to expand just As it would in a water pipe. The expansion broke the Alfalfa tap roots killing the plants he said. A number of Fields were blanketed with ice cutting off the oxygen Supply needed by the Alfalfa even though it lies dormant during the Winter Mcgrane said. Farmers became aware of the acuteness of the problem during the last two weeks Mcgrane said there Arentt Many alternatives especially going into the second week of May. Mcgrane said some Farmers will Plant Sudan grasses and sorghum although Many done to like those crops because of a possible poisoning problem during grazing. Apparently that problem can be sidestepped by letting the plants grow to 18 to 20 inches before feeding others will reseed or take other measures to aim for a crop in late August. Hartman has advised Lafayette county Farmers not to be too Hasty about blowing Alfalfa under. If the crop is 50 per cent alive he suggests top dressing with phosphate and Potash if the Alfalfa is dead but grasses Are present Hartman counsels dressing with nitrogen to Speed growth for grazing another option he offers is reseeding using chemical additives. Many Farmers will expand their Corn acreage because of the Alfalfa kill Hartman has asked the state agricultural stabilization and conservation service to relax its feed Grain rules for that purpose and other counties Are expected to follow suit if the As is rules favourably. Many agents stress applying the Alfalfa kill experience to future procedures paying special attention to Winter hardiness specifications Farmers should also avoid overgrazing and leave stubble in the fall for Protection. In years of abundance Farmers should store some feed for possible problems the next year agents stress the possibility that Hay will have to be imported to some counties next year has already Arisen because of this years Winter kill. The time Farmers must spend to alleviate the Alfalfa dilemma is stealing valuable time from their already late planting procedures. All area counties Are running two to four weeks behind
