Dan's "lingering question" is sound. The differences might be minor, but why throw them away on that account? The plus factor is that, from the grower's point of view, one wants to make the most of every growing day in the season.

You're right, Charlie;  
I think in the case of buried drip in alfalfa, this could be helpful. Not sure about the other irrigation methods - small amounts might just be lost in the shuffle.

Good article. Varieties differ within maturity group for protein so selecting a variety based on this would help.

Steve:  
We have seen protein vary pretty significantly by Fall Dormancy Group, but not so much within the same dormancy group.
