These are the optimal stages of development for harvesting fodder; the first grass mowing is carried out on the country's farms. In the observed fields, the height of cereal grasses is generally slightly higher than last year's values for the same period, the height of alfalfa in many of the observed fields, on the contrary, is slightly inferior to last year's.
