Quick Overview

One of the new applications for grazing/forage corn is utilizing the extreme digestibility of the brown midrib gene. Brown midrib (BMR) corn varieties have a natural mutation that results in lower concentrations of lignin produced in the stems and leaves during plant development; this results in higher fiber digestion. Dense stalks with an abundance of select sugars provide more energy and nutrition than any other type warm season forage; with dry matter yields up to 5 tons in only 7 to 8 weeks. This produces more tonnage and higher quality in a shorter period of time than most other forages. MC-MasterGraze BMR is known for expressing itself in foliage, not grain, meaning grain production is very minimal. The forage production is due in large to the tillering capabilities, tillers that have regrowth potential after grazing or cutting in the early stages. Can be grazed or cut and wilted for balage and haylage. Cut just before tassle emerges for highest quality. Also available in organic (see organic corn). Seed treatment of Poncho 250 is included in price. Packaged 80,000 kernal bags. Plant 30,000-40,000 pop/acre. TAKING EARLY ORDERS FOR 2014
