Corteva Agriscience, a global agriculture company has recently announced the introduction of Bovalta BMR (brown mid rib) corn silage
According to the company, the newest silage product is designed to meet the highest standards for yield and milk production, ensuring producers achieve new levels of operational efficiency.
Corteva said the new Bovalta BMR hybrids provide the highest levels of fibre digestibility and increased starch content compared to non-BMR corn silage hybrids – helping farmers reduce supplemental feed costs and improve dry matter intake. Developed with Corteva’s corn genetics and breeding programmes, Bovalta BMR hybrids aim to deliver new levels of performance, agronomics and profit for producers.
“The launch of Bovalta BMR hybrids reflects Corteva’s commitment to serving dairy producers with the innovative products they need to effectively and efficiently feed their herds and help grow their operations,” said Judd O’Connor, president, U.S. Commercial, Corteva Agriscience. “Drawing on Corteva’s leading R&D, these new hybrids offer a combination of outstanding genetics and agronomics from Corteva as expected from leaders in the high-value corn silage market.”
The agriculture company also said that the Bovalta BMR hybrids undergo extensive testing in a range of environmental conditions and demonstrate outstanding performance in yield and tonnage; pest and disease resistance; plant and root health; emergence, standability and vigour and drought tolerance.
“Bovalta can impact a dairy business in a multitude of ways. Increased digestibility and tonnage can lower input costs, and more efficient digestion can increase milk yield potential. This can mean maximising profit potential for dairy producers,” O’Connor added.
