Abstract:
Information on silage corn yield and quality can help silage growers and users choose varieties that best fit their needs and area. We conducted a silage corn variety trial using seven varieties for use in Central Arizona. Variety 28Z47 produced the higher silage yield with an average of 30.4 ton/acre and the variety 28V71 had the highest crude protein content (8.13%) among the eight. Varieties that produced higher yield, higher crude protein, and lower NDF than the average of the eight varieties were 851VT3 and TMF-2L-872.
