What Should You Expect From Your Corn Silage Crop Based on Growing Conditions?
Besides harvest management, the greatest impact on the quality of a corn silage crop is the environmental conditions throughout the growing season with the dominant climatic influences being moisture and heat.
Utilizing accumulated data on climate conditions, primarily moisture status, temperature (growing degree days) and solar radiation, can provide an early indication of what you can expect from your corn silage crop.
This information, coupled with current forage inventory and quality information, forage requirements for the coming year and grain prices, can help you make more informed decisions about harvest management (high-chop versus low-chop and length of chop), storage needs, and amounts and sources of commodities for forward contracting.
