VT = Very Tall; T = Tall; MT = Medium-Tall; M = Medium; MS = Medium-Short; S = Short

F = Flex; SF = Semi-Flex; SD = Semi-Determinant; D = Determinant
Non-fibre carbohydrates consisting of starch, sugar, pectin and fermentation acids that serve as energy sources for the animal
Whole plant digestibility value (higher = less loss)
Neutral Detergent Fiber, measure of the digestibility of the fiber composed of hemicellulose, cellulose and lignin (higher rating means that a greater proportion of the NDF is available to be digested, which may lead to greater feed intake)
Measure that includes 50% of NDF digestibility value and 50% of WP digestibility value. Dairy Type value indicates global quality of the feed and feed intake.
Measure that includes 50% of NFC Rating and 50% of WP digestibility value. Beef Type value indicates the energy content and digestibility of the feed.
1 = Poor; 9 = Excellent; R = Recommended; - = Rating not available
RR2 = glyphosate; LL = Liberty
Final plant population recommendations include assumptions that soil fertility and moisture holding capacity are sufficient to sustain the crop at recommended populations. Corn CHU ratings shown are for Eastern Canada; typically corn CHU ratings for Western Canada would be 100-150 heat units less.
