Silage is an important high-energy forage for livestock that can provide extra nutrients and high starch digestibility for your herd. Fit for your specific fields, Jung Seed Genetics™ silage corn products are developed to help you get the feed you need with high-quality tonnage and high-energy content. Jung Seed Genetics silage corn provides the opportunity for your operation to produce more milk and/or beef per ton and more milk and/or beef per acre.

Silage Management Tips
Harvest silage corn between 62-68 percent moisture to help maximize forage quality and minimize storage loss.
Monitor crop maturity for optimum harvest timing, which is generally five to six weeks after full tassel.
HDS® PLANTING AND MANAGEMENT TIPS
HDS® corn offers higher nutrient requirements. We recommend managing your silage crop with the proper fertility on your best fields.
Maintain a planting population in the moderate range, usually 3,000 plants per acre less than corn planted for grain use.
To stretch out and add biomass, HDS products generally perform best when planted in the recommended populations of 28,000 to 32,000 plants per acre.
Dual-Purpose Management Tips
To help increase tonnage on your more productive soils, consider plant populations on the higher side of what's recommended for each product.
Adjust your plant populations based on your fields' water-holding capacity and soil fertility.
Plant a fuller-season product to help maximize the growing season and environment. Keep in mind the effects on grain drydown and risks of early frost.
