Hay Master (Supposedly)
Just idly considering an idea here. I have no real input in this situation but it is fun sometimes to seek answers for such problems. It has been my misfortune to rake and bale alfalfa on what amounts to a waste water disposal site. It is a total of 150 acres give or take, and has a center pivot on it to hose on the waste water. This particular piece of ground does not need irrigation in a typical year, and given the amount of water they dump on it erosion and pivot tracks are an ever increasing problem. What this field really needs under the pivot is a grass that tolerates a great deal of moisture plus forms a tough sod that could resist damage from the pivot tower wheels. I got to thinking Reed’s Canary grass might fit the need well here; can’t say I have ever heard about anybody using it as hay in this big an acreage. Anybody out there hay a big chunk of Reed’s Canary and can offer some thoughts on it?
