KEY STRENGTHS

Extremely high yielding conventional hybrid! National placement with above average disease tolerance package. Big, girthy ears are eye-catching! Great silage potential as well.

MANAGEMENT TIPS

National placement line that fits on all soil types. Loves irrigation and works in dryland situations as well. Utilize a full labeled rate of a Group 15 pre-emerge grass herbicide. Push fertility levels as this hybrid responds well to added nutrition and flexes especially for girth. Foliar fungicide use is advised in areas where common rust and other diseases are normally present. Planting time insecticide is recommended in areas of the country with moderate levels of rootworm or other soil insect pressure.
