This picture of 209-53 was taken yesterday along highway 33 near Cashton. With rain delaying silage harvest most silage products from other brands have completely died causing whole plant moisture to crash. The late season staygreen and plant health of 209-53 makes it one the best silage hybrids available from Channel. Take a close look at the silage products you are planting. Hybrid selection is much much more critical when you rely on the whole plant and not just the ear.
