Harvesting high-quality silage at correct maturity is a major objective for the farmers in order to ensure the feeding of their dairy cows. Milk production is closely linked to the quality of harvested and stored silage.
In addition to dry matter (DM) yield and feed value, MAS Seeds maize silage R&D department has worked on GREEN+ silage genetics to improve the quality of harvested silage.
Key research axes of MAS Seeds R&D program:
•Dry matter yield/ha
•Feed value like starch & fiber digestibility
*GREEN+ is defined as genetic ability of a variety to delay maturity of leaves and stems, and so maintain their photosynthetic area active for longer period.
