Sponsored: Success in corn silage

Corn silage has great potential in Western Canada. But like any crop, producers must be aware of the challenges associated with growing, and plan carefully for next year’s season.

Western Canadian corn producers don’t get the luxury of time that others have, so making the most of the time you have is critical, from planting to harvesting.

“Things started later than normal in lots of areas, and it was very dry, which slowed down some of the early season growth,” explains Nicole Rasmussen, Corteva Agriscience area agronomist with the Pioneer brand, based in Southern Alberta. Silage makes use of a full growing season, so many crops weren’t able to progress like normal compared to previous years.

“Corn hybrids respond very different by geography. Be sure that you’re growing a product that you know will perform and finish well in your area.”
