Maize + Undersown Crop

Discovered: how you succesfully grow maize with gras as undersown crop and harvest up to 3 times

At last I can reveal the perfect combination of maize/corn and undersown gras.

Dumka-HS Corn

Stable growth and high yielidjng: Dumka HS corn

The truth is: Dumka HS-corn and Proterra tall fescue are the perfect “couple”.

Dumka HS is the high yielding corn variety that gives you the opportunity to decide just before the harvest, how you wish to use the corn: for silage, as grain/CCM or for your biogas plant.

At the same time Proterra grows as an undersown crop inbetween the corn. Proterra is a mix of  tall fescue grasses that fits perfect with Dumka HS. Proterra likes tha shadow of the corn, gives you stability through roots and leafs when harvesting the corn and you can even cut it in the next spring as sliage for your biogas digester.

Here is how you harvest up to 3 times:
Imagine, you plant Dumka HS maize together with Proterra tall fescue on your field. You harvest Dumka HS for grain/CCM. That is your first harvest.
You then also harvest the straw of the maize with a chopper. The straw is and ideal substrate for your biogas digester. That is your second harvest.
The third harvest is Proterra talls fescue that you cut in follwing spring. As silage it is also ideal for your biogas digester.
