Is your alfalfa off to a good start for the season? Alfalfa in the area is breaking dormancy right now.  Some of what you are seeing greening up in the field is dandelion and not alfalfa plants.  It is important to scout your alfalfa fields to make sure the plants are off to a healthy start and that there are enough alfalfa plants there to obtain optimum yield. Other questions and concerns have come up: Will the recent snowfall, frost, and overall cold weather affect alfalfa plants that have already started to green up?  Breaking dormancy occurs over a time frame of weeks and is not an instantaneous function.
