Maize Hybrid

Over the past number of years Shines Agri have identified a number of seed Hybrids best suited to growing under film in Ireland.

Independent research has demonstrated that the Samco system provides the potential for significant yield increases and/ or earlier harvest date in the maize crop. Such effects have been shown to be particularly valuable in marginal areas or seasons with low levels of accumulated heat. The micro climate created by the film increases the ability of the seedling to survive during cold periods where in the open it would die. This in turn helps achieve a high maize plant population and is crucialĀ  to achieving maximum silage yields.
