The article offers news briefs on topics related to hay and forage growing and researches in the U.S. Research from forage specialist Chris Teutsch of Virginia Tech found that growing of forage sorghum with silage corn could help reduce low silage yields. Researchers from McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana have confirmed that soybean plants could fill empty spaces. Moreover, Neal Martin has received the John S. Shenk Memorial Award.
