The Western Alfalfa & Forage Symposium is a comprehensive program on the many issues facing alfalfa and forage crops. Forages represent a major component of western farming and impact many other enterprises such as dairy farming, beef production, sheep, goats, as well as honey, agricultural industries and environmental issues. This symposium covers topics ranging from economics and markets, regulatory trends, industry issues, pest management, forage quality, irrigation, genetics to impacts and the environment. The symposium is a “must” for anyone interested in these important crops.
