MANAGEMENT TIPS
With parentage from the 105-110 day class on the male side, this hybrid is best used
in zone and south. Use a medium high plant population as it responds to higher
pop’s. Loves irrigation. Best placement is on average to above average ground.
Responds very well to foliar fungicides and intensive fertility management. Harvest
timely as fall stalk health is only average but can often be improved with K, Mn, and
Cu fertility.
