    Harvest Date

Here’s how you can maximise your yield and quality by picking the right time to harvest!

The time of the yield is decided not only on the quality of the harvested produce, it is also of decisive significance for the efficiency of your silage maize cultivation.

The optimal combines maximum hectare yields, high contents of ingredients and high digestibility, good silage ability and low substance losses. If maize is the main component of stable food (maize-based ration), the optimal DM content is 28-35%, as a supplement feed to grass (grass-based ratio) at 30-36%.

Result from harvesting too soon or too late

A harvesting date too early or too late may have a negative impact. The consequences shown in the illustration show how important the ideal time is.
