Goliath Silo Field Corn seeds, Silage Ensilage Fodder
Goliath Silo Field Corn, 110-120 days. Used exclusively as a silo filler.
Introduced in 1934, this heirloom leads all other varieties in the growth of fodder-producing stalks that are 12 to 15 ft. high. Leaves are broad and long; they start forming at the lower end of the stalk and continue to the very top. Strong root system reduces risk from wind or drought. One acre produces more tons of feed than five acres of ordinary corn.
Kernels are creamy white, with slight roughness. Widely adapted to all parts of the Corn Belt, even the northern parts, since its long growing season makes no difference when it is cut for ensilage. Seed is untreated. A medium late variety.
