Difficulty with alfalfa establishment in 2016

-A A +A

Alfalfa has a tremendous ability to survive and be productive under dry conditions, but this summer was one of the wettest ones on record for much of Kentucky. A number of producers sent samples of diseased alfalfa into the UK Plant Diagnostic Lab, especially from seedling stands. The lab reported cases of water mold/root rot/seedling blight (Aphanomyces, Phytopthora, etc.) early this growing season. Normally, fungicides on coated alfalfa seed prevent most seedling diseases, but it appears the wet humid conditions overwhelmed the seed treatments in many fields.
