As comedian Rodney Dangerfield used to say: “I don't get no respect”!
Forgive the double negative, but farmers and supporters of our lowly alfalfa and grass crops seem like they have the same complaint.
Consider a few basic facts:
- Hay (especially alfalfa) is the third highest crop in economic return to farmers in the USA, behind only corn and soybean, worth $18-22 billion/year over the past 5 years (greater than wheat, cotton, rice, etc.)
- Over 2/3 of all agricultural land in the US is grassland with an economic value of $44 billion/year (2008, Sanderson et al., 2012).
