Options for a Poor Growing Maize Crop Farming Note

Where conditions are not conducive to optimum maize growth, maize yields could be substantially reduced and this may lead to winter forage shortages. Assessing the crop early and estimating predicted yields is key to planning alternative options for a poor growing maize crop.

This Farming Note covers:

  • Assessing the maize crop and calculating predicted yields
  • Compensatory growth
  • Options for maize substitution
  • How to fill the forage shortfall

Issued August 2012.

This Farming Note is only available to members
