Description

Image is of the Matanuska Experiment Farm with harvested loose hay formed into stacks on hay stakes in foreground with farm buildings beyond. The differences in size and shape of the hay stacks suggest they may reflect experiments in either plots of different production techniques of the hay throughout the field or different configuration of the stacks for best curing the hay. Heavy forest forms the backdrop.
