Expected values for nutrient and energy content of whole maize plants



Expected values for nutrient and energy content of whole maize plants



Feldwirtschaft 29(4): 177-179



Data from recent experiments were used to derive expected values for DM, nutrient and energy contents of whole crop maize at different maturity stages. Since the feeding value of maize depends on maturity stage and ear proportion, the overall DM content was regarded as an unreliable criterion of optimal harvesting stage.
