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. Pioneer blends included in this comparison may or may not contain 5–10% of a minor component from the same family.

Data is based on an 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. 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 product.

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

STARCH AND SUGAR, %: Percent starch and soluble sugars (DM basis) in the whole-plant sample predicted by NIRS.

FIBER DIGESTIBILITY: Based on 24-hour enzymatic estimate of percent degradable neutral detergent fiber (NDF) as a percent of total NDF in whole-plant sample, predicted by NIRS.

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.
