Feeding Drought Stressed Silage
Drought conditions slow plant metabolism, leading to toxic
nitrate accumulations in corn plants. Properly managing
drought-stressed corn silage can reduce risk of nitrates in feed.
Drought Damaged Silage
During drought seasons, take action to salvage
corn silage yields and avoid toxic nitrate
accumulation at harvest.
Corn Silage Harvest
Proper harvest management can help obtain quality,
high-tonnage silage and maximize efficiency on a dairy.
Managing Corn Following Alfalfa
In Pennsylvania and the Delmarva Peninsula, it’s possible
to produce a successful winter alfalfa crop and a subsequent
corn crop with proper cover crop management.
Selecting Silage Fields
Before planting Mycogen brand Silage-Specific BMR and TMF
corn hybrids, producers should carefully select fields to maximize
quality and yield.
The optimum time to select hybrids is in the fall, when results from
harvest are still fresh in your mind.
Spider Mite Control
Take action to control spider mites before they cause
yield or tonnage loss and poor quality silage.
Silage Fungicide Application
Growers can mitigate risk and protect brown midrib corn (BMR)
silage fields through the use of foliar fungicides.
Stalk lodging resulting from rootless corn syndrome is the culmination
of many agronomic factors.
