KEY STRENGTHS
Flex ear runner with awesome top-end potential! Flexes well for both girth and length
with excellent kernel depth. Loves your best ground but can win anywhere. Good
tolerance to northern corn leaf blight and Goss’s wilt.

WEAKNESSES
Average gray leaf spot tolerance and average stalks.

MANAGEMENT TIPS
Utilize a full labeled rate of a Group 15 pre-emerge grass herbicide. Push fertility
levels as this hybrid responds well to added nutrition. Foliar fungicide use is advised
in areas where gray leaf spot and other diseases are commonly present. Planting
time insecticide is recommended in areas of the country with moderate levels of
rootworm or other soil insect pressure.
