A study was conducted to determine the effect of harvest time on the DM yield and nutritive value of maize forage at the Experimental Livestock Farm, Seoul National University, Suweon in 1991. Forage DM yield and DM content of maize forage significantly increased with delayed harvest (31 July to 20 Aug.) mainly due to increased ear DW. The ear to total DM ratio increased from 30% to 55% as the harvest was delayed.
