I want to share results obtained from the Brooks County 2016 Corn Silage Variety trial.  We planted this trial on April 25th and harvested 14 weeks later on July 27th.  This year’s trial included 69 replications, 23 varieties replicated three times each.   The varieties are ranked according to two different parameters, lbs. of milk/acre and green tons @35% moisture/acre.  We conduct this trial annually, in order to assist our Dairymen and growers with variety selection and planting decisions pertaining to silage production.  We would like to thank our cooperators, sponsors, and seed companies for their support and assistance.  All data collected is available at our office, please call or e-mail us if you would like additional copies or if you have any questions. Also, I have provided a link to view the data in its entirety.

Note* Top 3 hybrids were statistically the same, compared the all 23 hybrids in the trial

Note* DKC67-88 only replicated 2 times, all others replicated 3 times
