INTEGRA Silage That Produces®
INTEGRA SILAGE CORN HYBRIDS ARE CAREFULLY SELECTED FOR OPTIMUM PERFORMANCE
INTEGRA offers multiple silage corn options, each targeted towards specific forage needs and requirements: dual usage, forage quality, and Silage That Produces®.
Dual Usage are grain hybrids with the tonnage growers may desire for their unique feed and cropping needs for maximum flexibility in their cropping plan and may be centered around beef operations. These products tend to be taller, high-yielding products. While taller hybrids do not always “ton up,” many regions contend with highly variable environments which require taller products for harvestability and plant mass.
Forage Quality hybrids go the next step and are targeted for dairy operations focused on lactation, reproduction and intake potential of dairy animals. Forage Quality products are analyzed, and the results are run through the Milk 2006 equation to determine Milk/Ton, Milk/Acre as well as NDF, ADF, starch content, and other key indicators.
SILAGE THAT PRODUCES
INTEGRA’s own Silage That Produces® (STP) leafy silage hybrids are bred for high quality forage tonnage and whole plant digestibility of stalks and leaves. STP hybrids feature soft kernels with moderate test weights, flexible stalks with thinner stalk rinds, and medium ear placement with twice the amount of carbohydrates above the ear when compared to grain hybrids. STP hybrids have a slower grain filling period which results in up to two-and-a-half times longer window of harvest compared to dual purpose hybrids.
