Grow it yourself or buy it in?
The key benefits of each method of sourcing maize silage are shown in the table above. In many cases, it’s most cost-effective to grow silage on-farm from silage maize seeds.
Now is the time to secure your maize silage requirements for next season. For further assistance on growing maize silage on-farm talk to your Pioneer representative or calling 0800 PIONEER (746 633). If you wish to buy in some or all of your silage maize, talk to your local merchant representative or maize silage contractor.
To ensure that you are making the best maize silage sourcing decision for your farm and growing environment, make sure that you consult your Pioneer or local merchant representative.
