2022 average increase in alfalfa production

"We were coming out of a drought and late freeze... yet this is the thickest hay I've had in my life! I manage my soils to maximize the return on my ranch... WITHOUT a lot of inputs."
Applied to irrigated acres and dryland spring of 2022 and saw a 33% increase in tonnage.
With hay at about $250/ton, this rancher ended up with net profit of $207/acre, after Rhyzogreen® and application costs.
7:1 return on investment.

One of the first Rhyzogreen® trials ever performed... and it's not done yet! Rhyzogreen® was applied foliar to a portion of this field just once in the spring of 2020.
Both of these photos were taken 28 months later; the treated side is still much thicker, taller, and greener... after that single application in 2020.


McKay Idaho

"Just made the biggest cutting of hay I've ever made on these circles. It's cold country with a short growing season and we had an unusually cool spring, so that should have put us behind in production. Our normal yield for the year is 3.5 tons. I've already got 3.5 tons on my first cutting so whatever I get on my last cutting will be the bonus... I'm expecting about another 1-1.5 tons. This year, hay is selling for something around $250 per ton..."
40% increase in tonnage. Fertigation application so next to zero application cost. 1 extra ton per acre, minus Rhyzogreen® and application costs, equals roughly a $220/acre NET PROFIT.
7.85:1 return on investment.

Alfalfa field with severe bug damage, showing very little regrowth 2 weeks after cutting. First photo taken end of June 2022, same day as Rhyzogreen® & a liquid fertilizer blend was applied.
Second photo was taken mid-July... what a difference!
