The selection of a particular hybrid for cultivation inevitably varies according to the different criteria a grower has. In many situations yield is of paramount importance but earliness of maturity is usually another critical factor.
Other factors such as standing power, silage nutritional quality and end-use intentions e.g. whole plant silage fed to livestock or used for biogas production should be taken into account. No single hybrid will suit all situations.
We recommend you consult with John and Maizetech staff to ensure the best possible hybrid to suit your situation.Types of Seed – Click Here:
