2009 Forage Performance Trials

The 2009 Forage Performance Trials Report is now available online at

The report is a summary of performance data collected from forage variety trials in Ohio during 2009. It includes commercial varieties of alfalfa, orchardgrass, tall fescue, annual ryegrass and teff, in tests planted in 2006 to 2009 across three sites in Ohio: South Charleston, Wooster, and North Baltimore.

A pdf file easy for printing is available, as are downloadable spreadsheet files of all the trials.

Links to forage performance trials in other states are included on the Ohio Forage Performance Trials website. One very useful link is interactive website to compare alfalfa varieties across many locations (including Ohio data).
