Moving Forward with Silage Hybrid Evaluation
Roth, G. W.
In this session, changes and the collaborations between Penn State and Cornell that are occurring to refine the process of corn hybrid evaluation for silage will be reviewed. Methods of assessing fiber digestibility are being revised, assessing starch digestibility and developing new approaches for interpreting the silage yield and quality data.
