Abstract

The suitability for biogas production of silages from selected Polish-bred maize hybrids was investigated. Biogas and methane yield of silages was 513 – 703 and 339 – 443 Ndm3•kg-1 ODM. Hybrids were characterized by a high methane content in biogas (over 63%). Differences were found in biogas and methane production from different maize varieties. The highest-yielding hybrids were SMH 1785 and KBK 11149.
