Effect of drying methods on the field drying rate and quality of alfalfa and spring oats hay



Effect of drying methods on the field drying rate and quality of alfalfa and spring oats hay



Journal of the Korean Society of Grassland Science 21(2): 67-74



A field experiment was carried out to determine the effects of chemical/mechanical treatments at mowing on field drying rate and hay quality of lucerne (Medicago sativa Vernal) and spring oats (Avena sativa Swan). The chemical drying agent of 2% K2CO3, mechanical mower conditioning, and no treatment (control) were the treatments used for hastening hay-making in the spring of 1997. The forages were harvested at early bloom stage in lucerne and heading stage in oats.
