Management of Thunder Seed High-Digestibility (HD) Silage-Specific Corn
Plant at medium-low populations to realize optimal yield.
This may typically equate to around 3,000-5,000 plants/acre fewer than you typically do for grain, depending on your environment.
However, do not exceed 28,000 plants/acre regardless of how good your growing conditions may be.
Thunder’s High-Digestibility Silage hybrids are bred to have large flex ears and large robust plant stature.
Do not harvest for grain. The soft kernels stay at a high moisture content for a longer time to lengthen the chopping window.
