Corn is higher yielding than most other crops grown for silage, making it an ideal choice as a silage crop across Australia’s vast corn growing regions. A highly palatable, energy-rich forage that’s especially well-suited to beef and dairy enterprises, corn contains high levels of energy for body condition and milk production. Also, as corn contains high dry matter, corn silage is the ideal complement to grass-based rations for livestock.

Additional benefits to growing corn as a silage crop include direct harvesting, eliminating the need for in-field wilting, and maintaining a consistent quality over a wide harvest window. With the range of corn silage hybrids for sale at cost-effective prices, farmers can rest assured they can plant the right product for their paddock. All Pioneer® brand hybrids are developed and tested locally to ensure they represent the very best crop investment for Australian farmers.
