KEY STRENGTHS

Top notch yield, plant health, and test weight! National placement line with good southern and northern movement. Plant this one first and feed it to win. SmartStax version of H6222.

MANAGEMENT TIPS

The one real watchout is Goss’s. It may not be good enough for areas with moderate to heavy pressure. However, this hybrid has incredible top-end yield potential and will be planted on a lot of acres across a big area of this country and is a favorite background for many yield contest winners. Responds well to increased fertility and foliar fungicides.
