KEY STRENGTHS
Racehorse yielder for your best soils and/or irrigation! Has ear flex and deep
kernels to take advantage of intensive fertility management. Very good tolerance for
anthracnose and Goss’s wilt.

WEAKNESSES
Stalks are only average. Susceptible to tar spot.

MANAGEMENT TIPS
This is a hybrid with unlimited yield potential, but it needs fertility. In addition to filling
the deep kernels, you need to manage for stalk strength, so push the potassium,
copper, and manganese. Don’t over-do the nitrogen in relation to potassium! You
can always add more N later. This hybrid is very responsive to in-furrow insecticide,
microbial products like D-Comp and Micro-Cycle, and foliar fungicide use.
