Semi-Flex
Red
1245
2400
Medium

KEY STRENGTHS
Exciting SmartStax® product with dual-purpose potential! Tall hybrid with a very good
stalk that produces heavy kernels and a lot of tonnage. Works very well in continuous
corn.

WEAKNESSES
HPPD herbicide tolerance to 2-3X rates is not great, so follow the labels and don’t
overlap.

MANAGEMENT TIPS
This is a really good SmartStax® product that can push for very high yields and also
produce tonnage if you need a silage corn. It works in nearly all soil types and excels
in the high yield environments. The roots are good, but we’ve seen an advantage
adding an insecticide in the furrow.
