KEY STRENGTHS
Big yields from a shorter plant! If you designed a corn plant, it would have strong
roots and a healthy stalk that didn’t have to be 10 feet tall to produce a big ear. This
is that plant.

WEAKNESSES
Doesn’t like wet feet.

MANAGEMENT TIPS
This is a stable hybrid that has excellent yield potential if you manage it well. You
can push the population anywhere from medium to medium high for your area. It
responds well to fertility and early planting. Foliar fungicide use is encouraged for
help with diseases such as gray leaf spot but also to promote plant health and higher
yields.
