Tracking in alfalfa field question.

Today I went to talk to an alfalfa field's owner. He allows me to do tracking on his field but he just cut it. So the field looks like rows of short grass and rows of the cut grass. He said I can lay track on short grass but don't step on the cut grass rows.

My question: will my dog be able to know the difference? Because to me it looks like dirt field with died grass poking out from dirt( he said its growing back) Should I stay with the grass in public parks?

Right now I'm doing only straight line about 100-200steps. I've been practicing on park grass. I only did on long alfalfa just one time. My trainer said I should track on couple different terrains.

Thank you
