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.
  • A strong grain yielder, it has excellent potential for earlage and high-moisture corn use within its adapted maturity.
  • Harvest at a chopping height of about 4 inches. Increasing chop height to improve silage quality usually is not profitable, because the improvement in quality rarely offsets the yield loss.
  • When storing TMF hybrids in a pile or a bunker, recommended moisture levels for harvesting range from 65 percent to 68 percent; for bags, 62 percent to 68 percent.
