The Idaho Alfalfa And Forage Conference will be held at the Best Western in Burley on Feb. 26-27. The first day of the conference, industry experts will look at alfalfa production with limited irrigation, supplemental irrigation on dryland alfalfa and whether or not aerators improve irrigation. Alfalfa production in China, exporting to Asia, weed and pest management, new markets and genetics will also be discussed.
On Feb. 27, talks on timothy hay and organic alfalfa will lead off the day. Other topics will include the economics of corn grain vs. silage or alfalfa, fiber and starch digestibility of corn silage, and performance of warm-season annual grasses.
