Recommended for silage only. American leafy hybrids have a thinner rind, more leaves above the ear, softer kernels, more dry matter and slower dry-down. The end result is a silage with more tonnage, that has more protein, is more digestible, and has a bigger window of opportunity for harvest. Grain hybrids actually have opposite traits than leafy corn. The “Old Days” of selecting cheap blends, tall grain hybrids or the poorest looking grain field for silage production are in the past. Livestock economics dictate the need for specific silage corn hybrids and the traits bred into them. Leafy hybrids do not contain GMO.
