CORN - SILAGE
Munson Hybrids offers Leafy Corn Silage Hybrids. After studying the data, we feel Leafy Hybrids (LFS) produce more & better silage which means more & better milk production. Leafy Corn Silage Hybrids get its name from the gene that produces a plant with 8 or more leaves above the top ear. Floury Leafy Corn Silage Hybrids have these extra leaves but also have a silage specific kernel with more floury interiors. We offer numerous Leafy and Floury Leafy options in our line-up.
