Harvest timing:
• It is best to chop when whole plant moisture is between 60 and 70%
• Ensure you are harvesting each variety separately
• Weigh each hybrid immediately after it’s been harvested
Selecting the correct hybrid for silage is one of the most important management decisions for silage programs. The following criteria help growers select the correct hybrids for maximum corn silage production....

Soil Fertility

PRIDE Seeds Market Development Agronomist Neil McGregor discusses what you need to think about when it comes to nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. He also explains why it's important to test your soil every few years or so.
PRIDE Seeds Market Development Agronomist Sara Meidlinger discusses the differences between EDF (Effective Digestible Fibre) and EDP (Effective Dual Purpose) silage hybrids. It's important to know the differences between these types of silage hybrids in terms of digestibility, palatability and harvest window.

Fungicides on Corn

PRIDE Seeds Market Development Agronomists Drew Thompson and Matt Chapple discuss fungicides on corn, and how the genetics of various hybrids react.
The first ever planting of the PRIDE Seeds demo plot in Pain Court, ON has been completed under the direction of Market Development Agronomist Matt Chapple. The new demo plot is located on the property of PRIDE’s head office, adjacent to the new PRIDE Seeds Education Centre, which was unveiled earlier this year.    The project
For corn, 2018 is likely to be remembered as the year of ear moulds and the associated mycotoxins. Some counties (eg. Haldimand and Niagara) were not as severely impacted by this issue as others, but the issue was felt to some degree across all of Southwestern Ontario. The dire economic consequences of this issue has the attention of all
The vast majority of producers understand the need/importance of sulfur for optimal corn yields, and most are targeting a ratio of 10-12:1 for N:S. This means that for every 10-12 lb/ac of N applied to their corn crop they will aim to have 1 lb/ac of sulfur – so an N rate of 180 lb/ac would have 15-20 lb/ac of sulfur. This seems to be the
