NNYADP RESEARCH RESULTS

Corn processing research reveals differences between vitreous-type and floury-type hybrids. Data in the 2021 NNYADP project report on "Corn Silage Soluble Starch as Influenced by Kernel Processing Score (KPS) and Kernel Type" shows that processing of the floury hybrid increased starch digestibility and the soluble starch pool of corn silage despite a lower-than-desired KPS. This project was among the first to utilize the CVAS Soluble Starch Analysis. Read the details online at https://nnyagdev.org/index.php/2021-nnyadp-projects
