Recent research has shown that high fertility dairy farm paddocks, including those with a history of effluent application, may not require any additional fertiliser to be applied. Different yield environments also influence the recommended planting rate for Pioneer® brand maize silage hybrids.
The table below gives indicative maize silage costings for both high and low fertility maize silage growing environments. High fertility environments include dairy paddocks coming out of long-term ryegrass-clover pasture, as well as paddocks with a history of effluent application. Low fertility environments include run-out pasture paddocks and repeat cropping blocks. Always soil test maize paddocks and apply nutrients according to the results.
