Growers Benefit from New Approach to Finding Silage Information

DuPont Pioneer The Silage Zone® resource targets seasonal activities

DES MOINES, Iowa, Feb. 3, 2014 - Forage growers looking for online management information now have an intelligent alternative to a catchall Internet search. The newly redesigned The Silage Zone® resource on pioneer.com is now organized based on forage growers' seasonal activities: Plant, Grow, Harvest, Store and Feed.

"This new approach displays decades of experience from forage experts in a more user-friendly, focused format," says Dan Jamison, DuPont Pioneer marketing communications manager for forages. "The site now offers a better grower experience with information that is more relevant to the season."

In the new-and-improved The Silage Zone resource site, growers can find a broad range of articles in each activity tab, including:

  • Plant: "Is Early Planted Corn Worth the Effort?"
  • Grow: "Alfalfa Growers Can Balance Yield and Quality"
  • Harvest: "Inoculant Mixing and Storage"
  • Store: "Approximate Silage Bunker, Pile and Bag Capacities"
  • Feed: "Reduced Lignin Trait Could Revolutionize Alfalfa"

All five tabs include both alfalfa and corn silage articles. The Harvest, Store and Feed tabs feature additional forage additives information.  From The Silage Zone resource site, growers can also link to agronomy articles and current product information pages on pioneer.com.

Pioneer dairy, livestock and nutrition specialists have consolidated production and management information about silage into one manual and it's now available to growers, students, university extension, nutritionists and anyone interested in learning more about forages. From planting through feedout, The Silage Zone resource manual is a one-of-a-kind resource that provides industry-leading research, agronomic information and nutritional expertise. It also offers an entire range of information on plant genetics, crop-specific forage additives, silage know-how and local services.
