KEY STRENGTHS

New SmartStax hybrid with more yield and anthracnose stalk rot tolerance! Stable performance across environments. Loves irrigation and handles wet soils very well.

MANAGEMENT TIPS

Nice looking hybrid with good yields that may be a little more offensive than defensive. Showed a favorable response to insecticide/fungicide in-furrow. Has an advantage when water is not a limiting factor and even handles excess water situations better than others so it may be your better river bottom ground choice.
