FAO grain 240 | silage 240 | grain type 2


  • high yield potential
  • use: silage, biogas
  • good digestibility
  • impressive plant height


MAGNATO is a silage maize variety in the early to mid-early maturity range. Very high dry matter yields and a high grain yield potential are decisive for good silage maize quality and can be achieved with MAGNATO. Agronomically speaking, MAGNATO is characterized by a high cold tolerance, very fast early vigour and an impressive plant height. The good cell wall digestibility and high starch content further underline its suitablility as silage maize.
