Abstract

One hundred thirty-two commercially available corn hybrids, grown in 2 field replications within three locations, were evaluated for effects of corn hybrid, kernel traits and growing location on digestibility. A significant hybrid by location interaction was observed for most kernel traits. There is potential to select hybrids for DM digestibility, but digestibility shows no consistent relationship with other kernel traits.
