The Manitoba Forage and Grassland Association (MFGA) has 21 fields involved in its Green Gold alfalfa testing program this year.
Terra Bergen is coordinator for the program.
"Fields are looking pretty good with the amount of rain that we've had. We've had a little bit of frost damage in a few sections where it was just slightly touched but it shouldn't affect the overall crop. The current height is averaging about 17 to 19 inches depending on the area," she said. "The crop is looking pretty good on the height and the thickness of the plant itself. Hopefully, we will have a great crop this year."
Bergen expects to see first cut in the next week or two.
