The nutritional properties of maize, specifically its digestible energy content, can vary significantly. Recent research further demonstrates that this variation is influenced more by plant genetics than by growing environment. This, says Tom Sauber, means that nutrient profiles can be developed for grains from specific hybrids and the precision and accuracy of feed formulation can be enhanced.
