The charts and tables throughout the guide are divided into Maturity Groups to enable easy comparison between similar maturing varieties. The tables provide useful independent data on both agronomics and feed quality for maize. Agronomy information is included for yield, early vigour and disease resistance. Feed quality information includes detail on both starch, energy yield and content. In addition, digestibility of maize is shown by the CWD scores.
Maize for Anaerobic Digestion
For the first time, independent data on late maturing and exceptionally high yielding varieties can be found on the newly published BSPB/NIAB Descriptive List (Varieties for Very Favourable Sites). Data can be found on pages 36 to 38. Some varieties used for AD do not appear on this list, but have been thoroughly tested in LG trials.
