BMR Corn Silage

 

Tons of reasons to plant our BMR.

Summary of Findings

  • Pioneer® brand BMR corn silage products averaged 8 percentage points higher in fiber digestibility, as measured by NDFD (24-hr), than competitors’ non-BMR corn silage products.
  • Pioneer® brand BMR corn silage products averaged 3 percentage points lower in undigested fiber, as measured by uNDF (240-hr), compared to competitors’ non-BMR corn silage products.
  • Pioneer® brand BMR corn silage products were equal to leading competitors’ non-BMR corn silage products for starch content.

*Family identifies hybrid/brand that have the same base genetics. Manage hybrid/brand within the same family similarly. May include selected Pioneer hybrid/brand, OR all commercial hybrid/brand compared from the same family in the defined geographic area.

Data is based on average of 685 comparisons made in North America for 2016 and 2017. Product responses are variable and subject to any number of environmental, disease and pest pressures. Individual results may vary. Multi-year and multi-location data are a better predictor of future performance. Caution should be used when making hybrid decisions based on single/limited plot comparisons. A minimum of 20 side-by-side hybrid comparisons is required for valid yield and nutritional comparisons.

DO NOT USE THIS OR ANY OTHER DATA FROM A LIMITED NUMBER OF TRIALS AS A SIGNIFICANT FACTOR IN PRODUCT SELECTION. Refer to www.pioneer.com/products or contact a Pioneer sales representative or authorized dealer for the latest and complete listing of traits and scores for each Pioneer® brand product.

~ The minor component of this AM blend product is not a Brown MidRib corn hybrid.

Tons/Acre (35% DM): whole plant yield adjusted to 35% dry matter. % DM: percent dry matter of whole plant at harvest. % Starch: Percent starch (DM basis) in the whole plant. % Fib Dig (24-hr): percent degradable neutral detergent fiber (as a percent of total NDF, DM basis) in whole-plant samples in a 24-hour period. % uNDF240: percent of neutral detergent fiber residue (DM basis) which is undigested after 240 hours of incubation in rumen fluid.

*All Pioneer products are hybrids unless designated with AM1, AM, AMRW, AMX and AMXT, in which case they are brands.
