The UK maize area continues to increase and for 2020 it was estimated to be more than 200,000 ha. Cropping has increased across all maize-growing regions throughout the country, and the South West and West Midlands regions now account for more than half of the total area. Livestock producers appreciate the value of high dry matter yields of high feed-value forage. The crop is an important feedstock in biogas production and the benefi ts of including maize as a break in arable rotations are widely recognised, particularly as blackgrass control becomes an increasing problem.
