Frozen and Immature Corn for Silage
Written by Bill Mahanna, Pioneer Global Nutritional Sciences Manager
It is only realistic to conclude that frost or freezing damage will come into play this year for our corn crop. Some fields planted for grain may not reach adequate maturity, and some growers may attempt to salvage these crops by harvesting for silage. Also, many late June or early July fields planted for silage may have lower levels of starch/grain by the time a killing frost arrives.
