Re: Demonstration Research Manual

“This kind of research is useful and it’s doable. It doesn’t take any complicated tools: I’m using a couple dollar-store hoops, a kitchen scale and some zip-lock bags. It probably takes a couple hours at the front end and maybe four or five hours later in the summer. But down the road, if I can gain another 15, 20 per cent production and I’m going to see that gain over 10 years, that’ll be time very well spent.” – Wayne Ray, Vanderhoof.

Manual “is useful and it’s doable”

“I’d really encourage other producers to do their own studies since other varieties might better suit their conditions. Harvesting alfalfa with higher protein can make a huge difference – sometimes as much as $100/ton – in what you can get for the hay. That can make or break your business.” – Traugott Klein, Vanderhoof.

Use science instead of guesswork
