Silage Corn

Silage Corn for Higher Milk and Meat Yields

Maizex is a leader in silage corn, offering diverse hybrid technologies to meet the specific needs of your ration. This includes a full portfolio of Maizex EnergyPlus dual-purpose hybrids to drive energy and feed efficiency and FeastPlus Maizex silage-specific hybrids for enhanced feed palatability, digestibility, and full-acre tonnage.

Maizex EnergyPlus Dual-Purpose Silage Corn – MZ/MS Hybrids

Provides greater flexibility for your ration.  Target higher plant populations for increased yield benefits. Features include:

  • Increased harvest flexibility for silage, high moisture, or grain corn.
  • Potential for higher total starch content and more energy-dense ration when compared to our FeastPlus hybrids.
  • Stronger stalks that improve standability for harvest.
  • A focus on selecting tall and robust hybrids that have high grain yield and are 100–200 CHU longer in maturity than normal grain hybrids for the area.
  • Approximately 50% of the dry matter in silage comes from the grain content.

Maizex FeastPlus Silage-Specific Leafy Hybrids – LF/LFG/MS Hybrids 

Provides high-end silage yields with maximum starch availability. Plant at medium to lower populations according to hybrid-specific recommendations. Features include:

  • Extra leaves above the ear to add tonnage and sugar content for better fermentation in the silo
  • The stalk above the ear is more flexible and digestible.  Silage focused leafy hybrids have a lower ear position and more plant above the ear to improve fiber digestibility. Slower grain and plant drydown for a wider harvest window to boost feed security and quality.
  • Leafy-floury hybrids combine effective fibre with highly available starch.

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.
