Free cob analysis

BRING maize cobs to Momm-ersteegs stand in cattle shed six to get a free dry matter analysis and an indication of when best to harvest.

The firm suggests that producers select 10 representative cobs at random from the crop – excluding headlands – as late as possible before the event, and wrap them immediately in an air-tight plastic bag.

Mommersteeg then advises bringing them directly to its stand. It will provide a DM analysis within five days. &#42
