Selecting corn hybrids for profitable silage

Jeff Coulter, Extension Corn Agronomist

Hybrid selection is a key step for profitable production of silage and milk. To reduce risk, producers should select multiple hybrids based on information from numerous sources including universities, seed companies, and commodity groups. Data from individual on-farm trials should also be used if available. Results from this year's University of Minnesota silage trials are available at www.extension.umn.edu/forages/pdfs/cornsilresults08.pdf. Past University of Minnesota trial results are available at www.maes.umn.edu/vartrials/corn/index.asp. If internet access is not available, contact your local extension office for a copy.
