Maize silage is one of the riskiest forages in terms of preserving. Correct chop length will help improve the fermentation and reduce heating at feed out.
Maize silage is prone to losses from insufficient fermentation. Using an additive can minimise losses by helping to control fermentation but also aerobic spoilage.
Losses are avoidable if maize is stored and clamped correctly and managed to prevent aerobic spoilage. Using an inoculant helps to encourage fermentation and will significantly reduce DM losses.

Forecasting the expected date of maize harvest is extremely important to maximise crop value as well as planning rotations. Harvest date is mainly determined by the variety sown and the season.
Getting land back into production quickly after a maize harvest can be the difference between having a crop for the spring that can be utilised or having expensive land out of production for a period.
