NDF; neutral detergent fiber, ADF; acid detergent fiber, TDN; total digestible nutrients.

Means with the same letter within a column for a given measurement are not significantly different as determined by Fisher’s least square difference (LSD, p=0.05).

Value of silage quality for a corn-soybean mixed crop were evaluated separately in soybean and corn
