2020 Maize Guide

The Wynnstay team of experienced and knowledgeable specialists offer advice on every aspect of growing and feeding maize. From choosing the field and variety selection, to crop nutrition and weed control, to dietary and rationing advice, our technical team have got it covered.


The 2019 season was another challenging one for maize, but for different reasons. The drought conditions of 2018 were replaced by a wet summer in 2019 and in Shropshire we recorded 22 days of rainfall in June! The crops which were harvested before the rain came again, have analysed well and yields were generally good. This does emphasise the benefit of growing a high performing, early maturing variety which enables harvest to take place earlier, under better conditions.
