Silage Yield of Exotic Corn1

  1. D. L. Thompson2

Abstract

Abstract

Tall-growing, late-maturing tropical types of corn (Zea mays L.), commonly called exotics, were compared with local hybrids for silage production. Exotics yielded 13 to 41% more dry matter, 4 to 28% more estimated total digestible nutrients, less crude protein but more fiber. Exotics would be most useful for management regimes demanding maximum silage production but tolerating less than optimum quality.
