Maize is one of the most important crops for farming. The crop area increased massively over the last years. One reason for the growth is justified by the production of biogas and the biogas industry. But not only for biogas, cattle (incl. milk production) and pig farming is requesting a high level of quality and quantity for corn silage.
For optimized yield and quality, a sufficient supply with nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and several micro-nutrients will be mandatory. Quality paramters like energy content, starch or digestibility can be influenced positively.
