Semi-Flex

Red

KEY STRENGTHS

Shorter hybrid with a big, girthy ear! Among the best roots and early vigor we saw in 2017! Exhibits a high level of anthracnose stalk rot tolerance. Strong drought tolerance.

MANAGEMENT TIPS

Looks great in all tillage programs and soil types. Good ear flex with excellent yield response to intensive management, especially with P, K, and micronutrients. Sensitive to high rates of ALS herbicides and really needs a solid pre-emerge herbicide program as the hybrid is short and there is a lot of ear flex possible.
