AgNews on some new alfalfa varieties that we will see in the near future.....the reduced lignin varieties sound really interesting about reducing number of cuttings, but holding up in the overall yield.....that would be a time saver.

That stuff sounds great. I wonder if water requirements and pest resistance have changed.

I like the sounds of it--20% more yield, 25% less work. But I wonder how it would work as horse hay? A few of my customers feed straight alfalfa to their horses. Would this maybe cause more cases of colic because of the reduced lignin?
