The medium early Milk Index maize

The new Milk Index variety will be marketed in Germany and the Benelux countries. This high-performance silage maize hybrid is the result of a special breeding programme which was explicitly focused on high feed quality. JANERO supplies extremely high levels of energy that can be attributed to two factors: the stover offers a digestibility that is far better than the average and at the same time offers extremely high starch levels. Further evidence for this is provided by its high to exceptionally high grain yield which allows farmers to harvest the crop not only as silage maize but also as grain maize.
