Abstract: This publication reviews research at the University of Hawaii’s College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources to evaluate corn hybrids for the silage and bioethanol industries in Hawaii. Maximizing yields is shown to depend on careful choice of tropically adapted hybrids and planting at suitably high plant population densities.
