Stay-green is defined as a genetic ability of a maize variety to delay the maturity of leaves and stems, allowing it to continue its photosynthetic process for longer period.

In the face of climate change and drought stress the optimal harvest window for silage maize grows shorter and more unpredictable. Our seed research team at MAS Seeds have spent over 15 years examining the morphological and physiological factors of the maize plant affected by drought.

This has led us to develop the Green+ line of maize hybrids, which have an improved ability to respond to stress including a longer stay-green period. These genetic advances make it possible to ensure that each stage of silage maize production – from harvest to animal feeding to the quality of the silo – is lower risk and more profitable for your farm.
