2001-08-21 Harvest Mowed all replications of treatment 6, reps: 1, 2, 4, 6, 3, and 5. The alfalfa was to small to harvest but I did not want the weeds to goto weed seeds and the alfalfa was blooming. I think we chopped third cutting T6 alfalfa back onto the plots. i.e. look at ag-log for August 24, 2001 we chopped the lysimeter field alfalfa back onto the rain because of the rain on 8/22/01 so I am sure that we chopped T6 plots back onto the ground. Not sure who raked the alfalfa in the lysimeter field. Because of 2.25 inches of rain we recieved on 8/22/01 we chopped the alfalfa back onto the ground. Mick chopped the alfalfa back on the ground.

2004-08-21 Harvest August 21, 2004 mowed all reps of T6 plots, reps: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. August 23, 2004 tedded all the T6 plots, reps: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. 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.
