Short Statured Corn Systems from Bayer Crop Sciences boasts a number of benefits compared to the taller varieties. Firstly is protection of yield with improved standability as the short corn is less affected by high winds thanks to its naturally lower center of gravity keeping it rooted in the ground. The short corn also has improved access as its lower form makes it easier for application equipment to maneuver while spraying.
Choosing the right corn hybrid to plant for silage can be tricky. We know what to look for when choosing corn hybrids for grain &mash; yield, standability, maturity and pest resistance â€” but what should we look for in silage?
A Purdue University study shows that high-yielding, modern corn hybrids take up not only more nitrogen from soil but more micronutrients such as zinc, iron, manganese and copper. Nitrogen fertilizer rates also influence how much of these nutrients are stored in the grain at harvest.
Corn no-tilled into soybean stubble beat strip-tilled corn-on-corn by an average of 42 bushels per acre under irrigation and dryland conditions in a 2011 study Monsanto conducted at its Learning Center in Gothenburg, Neb.
