DuPont Pioneer publishes silage production reference manual

Published on 11 April 2013

DuPont Pioneer dairy, livestock and nutrition specialists have consolidated production and management information about silage into a manual available to growers, students, university extension and anyone interested in learning more about forages.

The Pioneer Silage Zone Resource Manual serves as a concise source of relevant silage-production information covering many topics including planting, growing, harvesting, storing and feeding.

“The goals of the manual include helping customers meet the feed needs of their livestock operations and answering growers’ questions,” says Robert Larmer, DuPont Pioneer livestock information manager.

“Whether it is alfalfa haylage or corn silage or high-moisture corn, this well-rounded resource helps growers get the most out of their forage.”

The Silage Zone Resource Manual, formerly known as the Pioneer Forage Manual, is backed by the expertise of 11 dairy and livestock specialists, local agronomists and a nutritional sciences team.

It offers a range of information on plant genetics, crop-specific forage additives, silage know-how and local services.
