PYROXENIA silage

FAO group: 130
Use: Silage
Type of hybrid: Three-way cross Tc
Type of grain: Intermediate

Characteristics:
Extremely early hybrid suitable for silage production in mountain regions and cooler areas
In warmer areas is possible to use as an intercrop considering its extreme earliness
Adaptable to higher plant density (120–130 000 plants/ha)
Fast growing of dry matter of corn-cobs
High content of grains in silage matter
Excellent fiber digestibility
High content of starch

Recommended plant density:
Grain, CCM and LKS: 100 000 plants/ha
Silage: 120 000–130 000 plants/ha

Recommended plant density as an intercrop:
Grain, CCM and LKS: 90 000 plants/ha
Silage: 115 000–120 000 plants/ha
