      Ten varieties of silage corn were tested at the Maricopa Agricultural Center in Central Arizona. Information on silage corn yield and quality can help the dairy industry and silage growers choose varieties that best fit their needs. There were no significant differences between any of the varieties tested with respect to ‘yield per acre’, ‘crude protein’, NDF or ‘ash content'. We were able to find significant differences with ADF.

      Small grain varieties are evaluated each year by University of Arizona personnel. The purpose of these tests is to characterize varieties in terms of yield and other attributes. Variety performance varies greatly from year to year and several site-years are necessary to adequately characterize the yield potential of a variety. A summary of small grain variety trials conducted by the University of Arizona can be found online at http://ag.arizona.edu/pubs/crops/az1265.pdf.
