August 25, 2004 raked alfalfa in five of the six reps of T6 plots, reps: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. We did not rake rep 6 because we wanted to see what things looked like if we did nt rake things and recieved rain. The alfalfa in T6 plots was to wet to bale this afternoon and we were expecting rain tonight so we wanted to see if keeping the alfalfa all spread out (tedded) helps/or not to dry faster after a rain. August 27, 2004 raked alfalfa in all reps of T6 plots. August 31, 2004 Bob A. raked alfalfa in all reps of T6 plots. August 31, 2004 because of the rain we received this past week the alfalfa was no good so Mick chopped all the alfalfa back onto the T6 plots. We did not weigh the alfalfa from the T6 plots we just wanted the alfalfa off the plots. We did not want to add the organic matter back onto the plots so we chopped the alfalfa and removed the alfalfa from the plots.
