Dyna-Cure Resources

Welcome to the Dyna-Cure Resources Page!

This is where we have curated what we have learned about alfalfa production with Dyna-Cure for the past thirty years.

While your results will vary, these are some of the best practices that we have observed to:

  • Improve the quality and manageability of hay forages

  • Greener, softer, more palatable hay, digestibility and overall feed value

  • Better leaf retention, less shatter

  • More weight in the bale, more $ in your pocket.

Due to many variables beyond our control, KEYAG DISTRIBUTORS makes no warranties expressed or implied, concerning this product or its use beyond the description on the face hereof. In no event shall KEYAG DISTRIBUTORS be responsible for consequential or incidental damages.

Dyna-Cure Best Practices:

  • Applicators:

    • Installation and nozzle placement

      • Follow installation instructions and ask you rep about placements

    • Maintenance

      • In-season: Drain and clean applicator after each cutting

      • Weatherization details here

  • Product Handling:

    • Storage

      • Keep from extreme temperatures, especially from freezing

    • Dilution

      • 6-9 oz per ton is our recommended usage

    • Mixing

      • Always mix product thoroughly before blending, and if solution sets in tanks overnight

  • Shut off irrigation water 5 days in advance (1st & 4th cutting) *(Why? More in FAQ's, below)

  • Shut off irrigation water 3-4 days in advance (2nd & 3rd cutting) *(Why? More in FAQ's, below)
    • Reduces moisture from ground and dew

    • Helps in raking onto dry ground

  • Watch applicator/product level

    • If application rate is wrong, you can be using too much or too little product.

  • Make sure your swather conditioner is set correctly for proper action

  • Raking schedule **(Why? More in FAQ's, below)

    • Check for "ready to rake" beginning day 1 after swathing (fluctuates on tonnage)

    • Rake 1- 1 1/2 days earlier (onto dry ground)

    • Reduced handling

    • Don't "rope" hay when raking, leaf shatter is not an issue

  • Moisture content

    • Monitor for best results

    • Not recommended for high-moisture baling

  • Testing

Dyna-Cure FAQ's:

What happens when Dyna-Cure treated hay gets rained on?

​When rained on the hay may still discolor and because of the hay laying in field it may not test as well but the leaf retention can still increase bale weight.

 

 

*By turning off my water earlier won't I lose tonnage?

​We have found that by turning water off earlier the field is drier when you lay the windrow down, thus less water respiration during the curing time. We have found by doing this that Dyna-Cure treated hay can speed up curing time, saving 1-1.5 days in baling process.

 

 

How long is the product good for once I mix it in the tank?

​It is not recommended to leave mixed product in a tank longer than three days. If you break down and it sits three days is max. If you have mixture in tank and have a little left over at the end of the day no problem. Never leave mixture in tank between cuttings.

Weatherization tips here.

 

 

**When should I have the rakes ready?

​You will need to have the rakes ready at least two days prior to when you normally would. Don’t change your haying practices, but watch the treated hay and let it help you put your hay up earlier.

 

Why am I not seeing any difference in RFV?

​Mother Nature and cutting schedule along with age of crop and variety will play a factor in RFV. At the end of the day whether or not you see a bump in RFV, you can see an increase in bale weight thus paying for the product alone. We have found that the same test at several different labs will all have different RFV numbers. We recommend a wet chem test as they have proved less spread in RFV numbers.

If I have left over unopened product at the end of the year will it keep?

​Yes. In unopened jugs, keep in a dry cool place, keep from freezing.

 

Is Dyna-Cure approved for Organic production?

​Yes. It is certified by OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute).
