Digestibility of plant fractions from different genotypes and the predictability of quality of forage maize in northwest Europe



Digestibility of plant fractions from different genotypes and the predictability of quality of forage maize in northwest Europe



Netherlands Journal of Agricultural Science 33(1): 56-59



Differences in digestibility of plant parts from 5 forage maize hybrids are described and related to the differences in whole plant digestibility of crops grown under different conditions. Plant parts differed greatly in digestibility, and the proportions of the DM of the total plant were variable due to numerous physical, chemical, biological and genetic factors.
