Abstract

Looks at the production of cost effective, safe, and environmentally sound ways to produce and use corn Zea mays silage. The first section looks at production, incorporating: planning (production strategies, field selection, hybrid selection); and planting (tillage, planting dates, irrigation, weed control, harvest timing, harvest height, drought-stressed corn, stalkage). The second examines harvesting and storage strategies, including sections on the fermentation process and silage additives. A final section covers feeding silage: silage evaluation; feeding to dairy/beef cattle; mycotoxins; and buying and selling. -S.R.Harris
