September, 2011 / Late planted winter forage

What can I plant for this fall harvest?
Is it to late to plant winter triticale for forage quality better than BMR corn?
What can I plant to harvest this fall for emergency forage?

Nothing – it is to late for that other than grazing some of the winter grains and possi-bly ryegrass. What you can do is to apply 50 – 75 lbs/a of nitrogen (40-0-0-4S) on your grass and mostly grass hay fields. With the rain and cool conditions, it is perfect for growing quality grass and will give you the highest amount of forage in the shortest possible time.
