The National Alfalfa & Forage Alliance has chosen five research projects to be funded through the Alfalfa Checkoff, aimed at driving innovation and profitability in the alfalfa industry. The projects, based in Arkansas, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota and New Mexico, range from integrated pest management and pollinator protection to improving alfalfa silage fermentation. “We are extremely pleased with the response to our second request for proposals and the continued results of our checkoff funding,” said Beth Nelson, NAFA president. “Our Review Committee focused checkoff funding on those projects it believed to have the greatest potential for positively impacting alfalfa farmers’ future.” To see  a list of the five selected projects and their head researchers, click here
