Alfalfa fertilisation

For the highest dry matter production, apply the fertiliser rule of thumb to top-dress after the first cut in spring and after every second cutting. The best time to apply is directly after harvest to avoid burning the regrowth. Avoid top-dress application of fertiliser to wet foliage. Nitrogen is not required once rhizobial fixation is established.
