This table includes the area, production and humidity of all forms of maize harvested green grown mainly for silage. This includes green maize directly consumed by animals (without silage) and whole cobs (grain, rachis, husk) harvested for feedstuff or silage, as well as for renewable energy production. Maize harvested as grain and corn-cob-mix is excluded. This indicator uses the concepts of "area under cultivation", "harvested production" and "humidity". 1) The "area under cultivation" corresponds: • before the harvest, to the sown area; • after the harvest, to the sown area excluding the non-harvested area (e.g. area ruined by natural disasters, area not harvested for economic reasons, etc.) 2) The "harvested production" corresponds to the production for which harvesting started in year N, even though harvesting may finish in year N+1 (N is the reference year for data published by Eurostat). 3) In order to facilitate the comparisons of production figures between the Members States the figures have been converted from national humidity degrees into the standard EU humidity (65%).
