Miss Mollie LET ALFALFA TOPS FATTEN ROOTS NOW, ADVISES DYAS Now is the time to let alfalfa tops "fatten their roots" and build up reserves of food supplies," says E. S. Dyas, State College extension crops specialist. A growth of 8 to 10 inches before freezing is none too much says Dyas, and this means that the crop ordinarily should not be cut after the middle of September. Although alfalfa may sometimes be lightly pastured in October, it should not be eaten to a stubble. It must be remembered that old seedings winter kill more easily than new seedings and that they must have as much or more growth accordingly for winter protection.
