The development of maize hybrids has been instrumental in the worldwide success of maize silage, and the choice of a suitable hybrid is the most important factor for profitable silage production. The main criteria for selecting a hybrid variety are yield, precocity, and resistance to disease, pests and lodging (Delmotte, ).
