Brown Mid Rib Grazing Maize is probably the biggest advancement in crop breeding since hybrid maize. Unlike sorghums, sudans or millet who all require a minimum soil temp of 15 plus degrees for planting, BMR requires a temp of 10 degrees, allowing planting to happen earlier in the season and consequently feed to be accessible earlier. As corn does not tiller, BMR is a single graze option only, however as a single harvest crop after a cool-season annual forage or grain crop, it can’t be beaten. Utilize as a summer stockpile forage, providing large amounts of biomass to be grazed well into the winter.
- Sowing Rates 15-25kg/ha
- Rainfall 600mm+
- Requires highly fertile, deep, well-drained soil
- Frost sensitive
- Extremely palatable with high nutritional value
- BMR cultivars improve forage quality and notably increase milk production/productivity.
