In numerous trials throughout E. Germany, the yields of WIR 25 and Schindelmeiser silage maize and Altenburger Tonne and Rote Walze fodder beet when grown (sowing or planting date, late May-early June) after a winter catch crop of fodder rye were approx. 30% lower than when they were grown as main crops (sowing about late Apr.). The root/leaf ratios for fodder-beet as main and second crop were 1/0.35 and 1/0.43, respectively.
