Grazing Corn

Maizex FieldPlus Grazing Hybrids provide an excellent source of high-energy digestible feed to extend your grazing season. For many it has become a key part of an integrated winter feeding strategy.  Here are a few key points to consider: 

  • Grazing corn is an excellent feed source for winter rations that provides high digestible energy from fully developed ears and plant stalks. 
  • Use grazing corn as part of an integrated grazing system as an excellent way to reduce your feed costs per cow per day keeping the following points in mind
  • Select hybrid maturity with the goal of having kernels at roughly 65% moisture (similar to silage corn harvest) or 35 – 50% of milk line at time of average killing frost. 
  • Remember to ensure access to clean water supply, and supplement your ration with minerals based on your feed analysis and a salt source to ensure animal health and efficient weight gain.
  • Good weed control is also paramount to ensuring feed yield, quality, and consistency across your field.

Traits and Technology

The Roundup Ready® Xtend Crop System is expanding to provide you with more choices than ever. Built on Roundup Ready 2 Xtend® technology, you can still count on the high-yielding performance you’ve come to expect, but now with the added benefit of glufosinate tolerance.

Corn hybrids with the VT Double PRO® trait feature dual modes of action for above ground insects, such as Corn Earworm and European Corn Borer. The 5% non-Bt refuge corn is blended in every bag. Just fill the planter and go for convenient refuge compliance. Roundup Ready® Corn 2 Technology System tolerant. Hybrids with the VT Double PRO® trait should be the number one choice for rotated acres.

  • Broad spectrum control of above ground pests including Western Bean Cutworm, Black Cutworm, Corn Borer, Corn Earworm, and Fall Armyworm.
  • Builds on VT Double PRO® technology with enhanced insect control for healthier stalks and improved grain quality potential.
  • Maizex Trecepta® RIB Complete® hybrids are the preferred choice in areas with a high incidence of Western Bean Cutworm.
  • 5% Non-Bt refuge corn blended in the bag for easy field management.
  • Roundup® Ready Corn 2 Technology System tolerant.

SmartStax® provides the most advanced hybrid stack of herbicide tolerance and insect protection traits against European Corn Borer, Black Cutworm and Corn Rootworm. The 5% non-Bt refuge corn is blended in every bag. Just fill the planter and go for convenient refuge compliance. Roundup Ready® Corn 2 Technology and LibertyLink® System tolerant. Hybrids with the SmartStax® trait should be the number one choice for corn on corn acres.

Roundup Ready® Corn 2 technology provides producers with the flexibility and convenience of the Roundup® Ready system.

Safe, simple, dependable weed control. Roundup Ready 2 Yield offers the same great weed protection that farmers have come to expect from original Roundup Ready soybeans but with more yield potential. Roundup Ready 2 Yield Soybeans were developed through extensive gene mapping that identified specific DNA regions in soybeans that have a positive impact on yield. Using advanced insertion and selection technologies, the Roundup Ready 2 Yield gene is situated in one of these high-yield DNA regions to deliver high yield potential. 

Soybean technology that provides not only yield potential, but the key to unlocking broad spectrum weed control from both glyphosate and dicamba-based herbicides, including glyphosate-resistant weed strains.

Novel soybean technology that provides yield potential together with tolerance to three herbicides to provide outstanding weed control. These herbicides include recommended Enlist formulations of 2,4-D, glyphosate and glufosinate (active ingredient in Liberty herbicide).

Conventional corn growers want high yields. For the most advanced, highest-yielding conventional corn hybrids, choose Maizex X-Series. These hybrids are developed using modern breeding techniques, but are GMO free. Conventional herbicide programs must be used for weed control.

Hybrids containing the Agrisure® GT trait are tolerant to glyphosate. These hybrids are also excellent choices for refuge acres required with all Agrisure® traits that come without E-Z Refuge®.

Agrisure Viptera® 3220 E-Z Refuge® offers unsurpassed control of broad lepidopteran pests and corn borer with multiple modes of action and integrated E-Z Refuge®. This trait stack also provides tolerance to glyphosate.

Agrisure Duracade® 5122 E-Z Refuge® delivers effective, season-long control of several above- and below-ground insects. The trait combines two powerful modes of action for control of corn rootworm and corn borer.
