This corn hybrid evaluation for silage production is a producer driven collaboration between the Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania (PDMP) and Penn State. Test plot locations are chosen within 4 growing zones. Maturities across these zones range from 85 to 118 days relative maturity. Plots in 8 sites throughout the state were harvested for testing this year. For convenience, results are accessible below in both Excel spreadsheet and pdf formats. To watch our 2019 Corn Silage Discussion, link to the recorded webinar here after November 12, 2019.
