Crop Detail

Maize is a popular Kharif fodder in Pakistan and finds much use as fodder for livestock and poultry. The crop can be harvested in 60-65 days and it can be grown in most parts of the country. The green stalk has high carbohydrate contents so it is an enchanting feed for poultry. Hybrid seed should not be used for fodder purposes because they have less foliage, and short stature with less nutrition.
