Management Guidelines

  • High-yielding TMF silage hybrids are bred for high stover and grain components; a planned fertility program that provides adequate N, P and K throughout the season is highly recommended.
  • Recommended for silage, earlage and high-moisture corn.
  • Monitor harvest moisture closely as harvest approaches. Hybrids may be drier or wetter than physical appearance indicates.
  • When storing TMF hybrids in a pile or bunker, recommended moisture levels for harvesting range from 65 to 68 percent; for bags, 62 percent to 68 percent.
  • Adapted to a wide range of soil types.
  • In the Pacific Northwest, the relative maturity of this hybrid is 94 to 96 RM.
