Hybrid Overview

KEY STRENGTHS

Key line at late group one! Excellent top-end yield potential that blows out last year’s releases and competitors’ brand new lines. Best in class white mold tolerance, standability, brown stem rot protection. Also travels south well.

WEAKNESSES

Didn’t get enough test data to fully evaluate SDS score. It did look good in limited data in 2016.

MANAGEMENT TIPS

National line with broad acre placement. Otherwise, manage this bean for high yield potential.
