Final Report for FNE01-397
Note to readers, attached is the complete final report for FNE01-397.
During the growing season, I wanted an easily applied, inexpensive organic nitrogen source of certain vegetables that always seem to be short of it. Also, as an organic certifiers discourage the use of blood (and bone) meal due to unanswered questions about Mad Cow Disease, organic farmers need to find reliable replacements for nitrogen sources. I wanted to evaluate the agronomics of on-farm grown legumes (alfalfa/clover) and legume (alfalfa/clover) mulch hay in a controlled and scientific manner.
