Lindsay Corporation, maker of Zimmatic by Lindsay irrigation systems, released a new alfalfa profitability brochure called "Increasing Alfalfa and Other Forage Yields Through Efficient Irrigation Solutions." The eight-page brochure provides best practices and the latest research for achieving higher alfalfa yields, optimizing water use and lowering costs through precision irrigation.

It identifies management objectives for irrigated alfalfa, including the ideal soil water content in the root zone, when light or frequent irrigation is best, prevention of water runoff, irrigation before and after harvest, and how to prevent weeds from germinating.

The brochure show the relationship between alfalfa and forage yields and different irrigation amounts, and how alfalfa and forage water requirements are related to the crop’s evapotranspiration (ET) rate at each stage of growth.
