Proper Harvest Timing And Storage

The average farmer loses 15 percent or more of a total corn silage crop yield each year due to dry matter loss at harvest and during storage. Take these steps to help minimize losses and to ensure optimal forage quality at feed out.

  • Harvest corn silage when the crop is between 63 and 69 percent moisture.
  • Apply inoculant.
  • Pack densely with correct weight
  • Cover with two layer of plastics to seal and protect from spoilage.
