    • Forage Sorghum Hybrid Yield and Quality at Maricopa, AZ, 2015

      Ottman, Michael J; Diaz, Duarte E; Sheedy, Michael D; Ward, Richard W (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2017-02)
      Forage sorghum is commonly grown in Arizona for silage for dairy cattle and is valued for its lower nitrogen fertilizer and water requirements compared to corn. Five forage sorghum hybrids were evaluated in a study conducted at the Maricopa Agricultural Center in 2015. The hybrids tested did not differ in yield or overall feeding quality (TDN, total digestible nutrients) although some differences in heading, plant height, moisture content, and some specific quality parameters were detected.
    • General Maturity Groups for Cotton Varieties

      Silvertooth, Jeffrey C. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2015-06)
      Three maturity groupings are often used to classify cotton varieties, consisting of: 1) short season or more determinate plants, 2) medium season varieties, and 3) long or full season varieties which are more indeterminate in nature. Classification of cotton varieties into one of these three categories is not necessarily straightforward in all cases. In fact, it easily can become a process of “splitting hairs” when making maturity grouping designations for cotton varieties. Nevertheless, maturity designations are commonly assigned to most commercially available varieties, which can effect selection and management.

    • Growing Alfalfa for Seed in Arizona

      Husman, Stephen H; Ottman, Michael J (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2015-04)
      Seed production for profitability is challenging. Cultural practices differ from those commonly used in forage production. This article outlines management recommendations that may help to accomplish profitable seed alfalfa yields.
    • Growing Alfalfa Seed in Arizona

      Ottman, Michael; Plant Sciences, School of (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1999-07)
      Due to worldwide shortages of non-dormant alfalfa seed, production opportunities and acreage have increased recently in Central Arizona. Seed production for profitability is challenging. Cultural practices differ from those commonly used in forage production. This article outlines management recommendations that may help to accomplish profitable seed alfalfa yields.

    • Growing Grain Sorghum in Arizona

      Ottman, Michael J; Univ Arizona, Coll Agr & Life Sci (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2016-10)
      Production practices for grain sorghum are discussed including hybrid selection, planting date, seeding rate, row configuration, irrigation, fertilization, pest control, and harvesting. Grain sorghum (milo) is a warm season, annual grain crop. It is more resistant to salt, drought, and heat stress than most other crops. Nevertheless, highest yields are obtained when stresses are minimized. Revised 10/2016. Originally published 06/2009.

    • Growing Strawberries in Home Gardens

      DeGomez, Tom (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2015-06)
      Strawberries are easy to grow. They provide the first fruit of the season, and are quick to bear. When harvested fully ripe in the home garden they have excellent flavor. In stores they can be expensive and are often harvested prior to being fully ripe. Various types of strawberries are available. Each type has specific environmental requirements such as temperature and hours of daylight for good production. With the wide range of climatic zones in Arizona it is important to choose the right type of strawberry for your growing conditions.
