Maizex Leafy silage hybrids have been bred and developed specifically for silage purposes. They have extra leaves above the ear. These extra leaves not only mean more total tonnage, but they raise the sugar content of the corn silage. This extra sugar content allows for a faster fermentation after harvest. The grain of leafy hybrids is softer and this allows the starch to be more available to the rumen microbes. Higher starch availability means you can feed leafy silage as soon as a month after harvest.

  • Higher total silage yields.
  • High starch contents and high starch availability.
  • Leafy hybrids have slow grain and plant drydown allowing for a wider harvest window.
Maizex LF815R

A relatively new hybrid and a leader in the 2550­2700 chu range. Trial data from the last two years in our hometown of Enderby have produced indicate 113% relative yield and 37.5% grain content. LF815R is a tall hybrid with broad leaves and exceptional total plant yields.

Seeding rate: 28,000 – 30,000 seeds per acre

Maizex LF728R

The leading early hybrid for the southern BC interior and Cariboo regions producing exceptional total plant yields with very high grain content. In the 2014 Enderby trials, LF728 was the clear leader, with 125% relative yield and 55% grain content. LF728 is a broadly adapted hybrid with unmatched spring vigor.

Maizex LF815R

For the last eight years, LF755RR and its conventional counterpart LF753 has been one of BC’s best performing hybrids in the 2350­2500 chu range. Pacific Field Corn Association independent trials confirm this trend, with both a remarkably high relative yield and grain content. LF755R emerges very fast in the spring, with dark green, upright leaves and often double­cobs in the right growing conditions.

Seeding rate: 28,000 – 30,000 seeds per acre
