Our Silage Hybrids

Maizex Silage Hybrids

RationMZ – Meeting Silage Needs Today and Tomorrow                                                                   

Silage corn producers have different needs depending on the end goals of their nutrition program.  To more easily identify how to meet these differing needs we have the FeastPlus and EnergyPlus family of hybrids.

FeastPlus Hybrids:

Extra leaves above the ear for not only more tonnage, but also the benefit of higher silage sugar content for faster fermentation after harvest.
Lower ear placement. The stalk below the ear is higher in fibre and less digestible.  This provides a higher percentage of fibre above the ear.
Slower drydown for a wider harvest window
Best results at medium to lower populations

EnergyPlus Hybrids:

Provide greater flexibility to use as a silage, high moisture or grain corn
Higher starch content and more energy dense ration
Stronger stalks for standability
Medium to higher populations for increased yield benefits

Talk to your local Maizex Seeds dealer or Territory Manager for details on the best hybrids for your nutritional and program needs.
