RyzUp SmartGrass accelerates plant growth early in the growing season, resulting in more dry matter production and increased silage yield at harvest.
“With the value of corn silage continuing to rise, RyzUp SmartGrass provides a proven and effective method for growers to increase their corn silage yields and improve their bottom line,” said Jim Hansen, marketing manager for Valent. “Not only does RyzUp SmartGrass provide a significant boost in plant growth during the early part of the growing season, it does so without sacrificing feed quality.”
RyzUp SmartGrass can be applied anytimebetween the second to sixth leaf stage in silage corn and may be tank mixed with herbicides, fungicides or fertilizers to help minimize fuel and labor costs. At the recommended use rate range of 0.3 to 0.5 ounces per acre, one bottle of RyzUp SmartGrass treats six to 10 acres.
RyzUp SmartGrass is listed by both the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) and the National Organic Program (NOP) for use in organic production. It is an excellent option for both conventional and organic dairies.
